Not very clued up on this sort of stuff.

Q. Is it risky if the wire is just slipped under the A pillar cover trim, on the windsheild side?

I.e. is the associated risk, that if the wire was placed infront of the bag it would be ripped out and propelled towards the drivers face ?
Or is the risk, that “conductive” power / magnetic field created by the power cable, running up these power wires [+ & - ] could trip the airbag to go off off?

What is the issue?

Or is it safe?

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Electrical interference isn't a concern, making sure nothing fouls the airbag from deploying correctly is
