Its kind of painful watching videos like this, but it amazes me how quickly the SRS systems work. Where its going in head on, watching from above, the first few inches of the car is deforming, but the airbags deploy before you even see the 'occupant' move forward under the deceleration.

Having seen what was left of my VW Bora I had when my wife (and 1 year old in back) had a head on crash at 60-70mph, I am so grateful of the work that goes in to these systems as she got out with just bruising.

The number of crash permutations they have to consider is quite crazy. And each crash is never really identical.

I agree and thought the same...and they are quite scary to watch. Its also one of the reasons I went for a larger rather than smaller car based on the journeys I do and the accidents I pass
