Just registered to say:

Driver: glad you're ok

Driver: you're a fucking tool. these cars have multiple sensors taking hundreds of measurements a second, so that only the airbags that are needed deploy. pretty obviously there is no impact damage to the front, and almost none on the passenger side. those airbags going off could have potentially caused FAR more harm than good. that's why they have the sophisticated systems that they do.

every safety system in that car worked as designed, and you were able to walk away because of it.
