I think it is kind of funny how the hybrids seem to be singled out with respect to "dangerous" battery systems and problems for first responders. I read an article several months ago (sorry, don't remember the source) but it basically said that ALL new cars are becoming more dangerous for the response crews. The reason...mainly... more air bags and "smart" airbag systems that may not deploy all the airbags in a crash. As the crews start to cut through the car, they never know if there is a side curtain air bag, door air bag, undeployed front air bags, etc. You just about need a schematic for each car on the road! Maybe they could just start putting "Cut here" lines on the cars...maybe use ultraviolet ink or something...you'd never see it until the emergency guys put on special glasses or shined a black light at the car.
