2005 GTO airbag help
Hi guys. I was in a low speed accident this morning during a heavy rainstorm. My GTO hydroplaned and I plowed into a parked car in a parking lot. No one was injured. It did a fair amount of damage to the front end of the GTO and the back end of the parked honda accord.
Everyone was fine. Nobody was injured. I had a co-worker in my car with me so I had a witness to the events as the happened. I gave my written statement to the police, that i'd turned onto the street heading west, the car hydroplained, jumped the curb and we hit the parked car.
The bitch is, the cop cited me for "careless driving," which I plan to fight on the court date on the citation. Now, I know that some airbag systems are computer controlled and do not deploy at crash speeds BELOW a specific MPH. Neither the driver nor the passenger airbag deployed, and i'm trying to find the specs on the airbag system in the 2005 GTO to help verify my case that I wasn't driving carelessly or at an unsafe speed.
I know full well that any car can hydroplane, even with traction control. I think because she saw it was a GTO sports car that we must have gunned the engine. From where we made the right hand turn onto the street to the parking lot, it's maybe a total of 100 yards. We were smoothly accellerating but we were definitely not speeding. The car hit the puddle, the water was so deep it splashed up over the windshield, we hydroplaned.
So, can anybody help me find out about the specs of the airbags in my stock 2005 GTO?
