Help with rate of deployment?

  1. Feb 28, 2007 #1
    Hi, I'm new to the forums and need some help. I work in a law office and we recently had a client come in and say she was t-boned by another car and she took the ticket because they said she failed to yield. The airbags in the other mans car deployed because she was hit so hard. Does anyone know how fast this guy could have been going to deploy the airbags? It was a 1999 Mazda Protege if that helps.

    Don't worry, i'm not holding anyone to anything :smile:
