This just shows you that power of an air bag. Now think of it exploding in your face and chest if you are in a car accident. Airbags deploy at over 200 mph. I think they cause more damage than just wearing a seat and shoulder belt as now you are getting SLAMMED to go in the opposite direction. Although the natural response to a sudden stop is to reverse ones direction, an air bag going at 200mph significantly adds to the backward movement, especially ones head creating a whiplash effect. Auto manufacturers are now making two-stage air bags, but I still think they are more of a problem than a safety device.
