You can remove it or deactivate it if you feel it's 'unsafe'.

According to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation it is perfectly legal to install a non-airbag equipped aftermarket steering wheel.

Go to http://192.75.156.68/DBLaws/Statutes...sh/90h08_e.htm

for everything you ever wanted to know about the legalities of modding your car.

Oh and if you don't want your SRS light to come on just bridge the airbag connector with a 4ohm resistor. Simple as that, did it myself.

will give u a hard time
is the fact

they quote your car with its standard safety features in mind
that is why

I had some hassle from cops in mississauga re: my momo monte carlo wheel. Having the wheel was fine; however, they checked to see if the horn was operational (thank God that it was working). At the same time they hassled me for about 20 min. re: my ride drop and so-called improper tire wear. The ass also checked under the hood for a swap. I'd be careful with whatever major mods you do-you'll end up getting screwed.
