Can anyone help ? My car is a 523i built in 2000.
I was involved in a collision recently. Narrow country lane, came round a corner. Saw other vehicle. I stopped my car but the other guy fail to stop (I think he thought he could squeeze past).
So - I need to prove (to county court) that I was stationary and I wondered whether the air bags only work if you are moving?? If so, the fact they didn't work may be proof that I was stationary??
The other thing is that the collision was quite gentle - the other guy was doing less than 10mph.

they would deploy at a given force. not speed. the force put out by being hit by a F350 at 10 mph and a geo metro at 10 mph is greatly differant, especialy in this circumstance that being you think the other guy tried to squeeze through, he would have been aplying power INTO and Through the collision. exerting more force than if he had rolled into you at a stop sign.
