    Sounds like a design flaw to me.
    If a person cannot mechanically open the door, that is a problem!

    There is a manual release lever safety feature next to the driver's seat closest to the door, a feature listed in the car's handbook — but many owners are not aware of it, experts said.

    Mine clips on the seatbelt. It is a seatbelt cutter and a window breaker. Good to have for emergencies if someone else is trapped in a car and you need to get in and get the person out.

    According to the SEAL survival handbook you can use any heavy object in the car as long as you strike with enough force at the center you can break through it- they recommend even using your car keys or if you have nothing just brace yourself sideways and kick it since your legs are stronger than your arms.

    Not all 72 year olds are able bodied enough to break a car window from inside.

    Poor guy was 72 years old and trapped in his car, instead of asking why didn't a seventy-two year old Army vet didn't have the strength to break out of his car window, why didn't he have a phone to call 911 or a friend? Or more importantly, why didn't anyone come to help him out?
    The risk I took was calculated but man, am I bad at math.
