They were outlawed down here for any vehicle with an air bag. Pre-airbag cars, big rigs, cargo vans and the like can still have them. Also, I think people with disabilities are allowed to have them.I still use some of those phrases.
Wife wanted a "steering knob" (sometimes called suicide knobs) for her Highlander, but salesman said they'd been outlawed, however, could still find them at truck stops.
Supposedly an airbag will launch one of those things through a human skull and can turn a survivable fender bender into a closed-casket funeral.
