Hi. I hope everyone is staying safe! I have just had an accident aquaplaning on the motorway doing 70mph. I hit the left barrier twice and the central reservation twice. The car is smashed to pieces and did a pretty good job of keeping me safe but not one airbag activated.! I have front, side and rear damage all caused at speed and I just wanted to find out why?  I know that maybe if the drivers steering wheel one went off I may have had more injuries. I just wanted some opinions please??

You probably didn't hit the obstacles dead head-on, so the G-forces weren't strong enough to trigger the airbags...

Yes that's what i was told by the police but if you saw the car.. The seat belt pretensioner worked well though and assist from a few aches in my back i am OK. The car itself was superb.
