Iwas involved in a rather serious accident in which I collided with a Buick century that ran a stop sign. I was traveling 30-35 and my front end collided with the drivers side of the other car. The Buick was totalled. My car was severely damaged in the front. The airbags failed to deploy. According to the owners manual they should have activated at a speed greater than 14 mph.
