So vehicle hit another car making a left hand turn in front of them at an intersection. Police officer comments were that if the air bag had not gone off driver would have had Major injuries. Drive walked away with lots of bruises. Notice the air bag ion passenger side. It uses the front windshield to deflect the bag into the body of the passenger. When people have cracked or damaged windshields on passnger side the possibility of t he air bag exiting the vehicle versus deflecting into the passenger is highly probable.
As for Air bag lights being on. The Ministry of Transporation on a safety inspection says it's ok, I feel it's NOT!. Air bag repairs and lights being on need to be fixed, as they do save lives.
