In certain low-speed collisions the air bags may not deploy. The air bags are


In certain low-speed collisions the air bags may not deploy. The air bags are designed not to deploy in such cases because they may not provide benefits beyond the protection of the seat belts in such collisions.

Air bags are not designed to inflate in rear collisions, because occupants are


Air bags are not designed to inflate in rear collisions, because occupants are moved backward by the force of the impact. In this case, inflated air bags would not be able to provide any additional benefit.

Front air bags may not inflate in side impact collisions, because occupants move


Front air bags may not inflate in side impact collisions, because occupants move to the direction of the collision, and thus in side impacts, front air bag deployment would not provide additional occupant protection.

In a slant or angled collision, the force of impact may direct the occupants


In a slant or angled collision, the force of impact may direct the occupants in a direction where the air bags would not be able to provide any additional benefit, and thus the sensors may not deploy any air bags.

Just before impact, drivers often brake heavily. Such heavy braking lowers the


Just before impact, drivers often brake heavily. Such heavy braking lowers the front portion of the vehicle causing it to ride under a vehicle with a higher ground clearance.

Air bags may not inflate in this "under-ride" situation because deceleration forces that are detected by sensors may be significantly replaced by such under-ride collisions.

Air bags do not inflate in all rollover accidents, even though the vehicle is


Air bags do not inflate in all rollover accidents, even though the vehicle is equipped with side air bags and curtain air bags.

Air bags may not inflate if the vehicle collides with objects such as utility


Air bags may not inflate if the vehicle collides with objects such as utility poles or trees, where the point of impact is concentrated to one area and the full force of the impact is not delivered to the sensors.
