An open stretch of highway is often a fascinating sight for anyone driving a bike (or pick any of your fave vehicles). You kick it into high gear and floor it, reaching speeds of more than 120kph because why not? The coast is clear, right?
Well, this story is something, which will get you goosebumps and you will think not just twice but many and many times to speed your bike up.
Let's take a ride to the story!
This is the reason why there are speed limits. Car companies usually perform destructive testing to ensure the safe design standards.
...Russian testing site decided to crash a car at 120miles/hour.
For a difference, they made crashing by 50mph, just as China can make any of their cars appear safe by testing at 35mph. But 120mph? It's never been done before.
This Russian testing snapshots will pretty much sum it up.
In these demonstrations, one car is running at close to 120miles/hour and hits a stationary vehicle.
Imagine the devastation that could occur if both the cars were moving? Whammy!
The footage clearly demonstrates the utter destruction of a high-speed impact.
Doesn't the car seem to have almost completely disintegrated?
With that kind of collision, not even a seat belt can help you survive.
Well, these tests were taken under controlled examination and with crash test dummies. If anyone actually been inside the cars at the moment of impact, it would have resulted in an inevitable fatality.
Would seeing the devastation from these controlled accidents encourage people to slow down on the road? If not... Then what will?
