This is a good time to practice exiting your car!

If there were flames in that car, you’d be dead for sure. Sobering.
I’ve tried a few times to get out of my 99 car window and made it as I’m a small guy. But if I had to do it in a panic, I’m not convinced I had enough muscle memory to get it done fast enough.
Many years ago when I was an engineer in training at an oil refinery, we did smoke evac training. Terrifying to try to find your way out of a smoke filled building with full gear on, but no visibility. New found expect for firefighters.
I’ve got a new car coming and this video has encouraged me to committing to practice exits with my gear on. What else am I gonna do for the next 2 months anyway.

Removing the vent window should be very helpful for this situation.
Ducting may be added to provide fresh air to the driver compartment. This ducting shall be located in the driver and/ or passenger vent window area by means of a transparent/ alternate vent window material and duct with no modifications to the bodywork.
To improve driver exit through the window area, the driver vent window and vent window supporting frame may be removed as an assembly. If removed, ducting may be in the passenger side vent window only.
