"Crush zone sensors are located at the front of the vehicle. They activate the air bag when they are struck by the crushed structure of the vehicle."
Activate by the crushed structure of the vehicle.. so basiclly when your bumper hits your rad it goes off. Not on an interestion crash, Its more likly to go off on a head on.

"Sensors should respond to a fixed barrier impact speed of approximately 18 km/h or higher. There is a 'may deploy' speed range from 13 km/h to 18 km/h. This reflects the variability in, for example, crash sensor and vehicle structural performance. Below an impact speed of 13 km/h, no airbag deployment is desired."

Ah, hit by a 1.6EL... I was always fond of those... Canada-only, they did, however, manage to screw up the 1.7EL

Glad to hear everybody'* okay... Damage estimates yet?

That'* because it is the "Little Sackville River"..... the "Sackville River" is on the other side of town.... the one near the accident is the smaller one.

Climax Springs don't sound like a bad place to be. That'* what I think I'll call my new bed.
