Bet the a-hole thinks twice about blowing that horn the next time.

Don't the motion sensors have to be armed for it to happen? I thought it will take a 30 mph impact for it to activate and the car to be moving or something like that?

The video was reposted and I have the same question myself. That airbag seems to inflate far too slow to be useful in an accident which may last 0.4 seconds. Seems staged.....who would have known that lady was crossing the street and planning to do that.

I noticed also that the air bag deflates too slowly to be a live event.

I've never met any jerks that were driving anything made before 1930.

You would have a hard time finding a "jerk" driving a W123 diesel. I'm not stating that they don't exist, but, the chances of you finding one are just about nil.

Now, $hitboxes on the other hand are at the opposite end of the spectrum. It's difficult to find one that is driven by a "non-jerk".

But if we met then I might find a W126 Jerk and you might find a $hitbox "non-jerk" Gimme a break, Brian. I have only run 3 people off the road this year. 2 of them were in the 210 and one of them was in the "Y-body". Never ran anyone off the road in the $hitbox because I was transporting valuable cargo. The dogs and/or my ATVs.
