I was driving on 695 here in MD while going about 20 MPH in stop and go traffic my airbags deployed. This was without being hit or hitting anything. Luckily I was able to get to the shoulder and avoid any further damage or possible injury. Then, while on the side of the road the passenger airbag continued to pulsate and eventually exploded, destroying the dash and shooting a piece through the windshield. Again, luckily I was outside of the car at this point and I did not have a passenger, they could have been killed. Toyota is currently investigating it but I was told not to expect much.
