#2065: SteerSpare

Cars often carry a spare wheel which is narrower than the normal ones in order to save space.

Today’s invention takes that idea to an extreme by using an ultra-thin spare wheel as a part of the steering mechanism.

In an emergency, the airbag (orange) would be removed and the spare wheel extracted and fitted on an axle.

Refitting the airbag container would allow this to continue to fulfil the role of temporary steering wheel.
