An open stretch of highway is often a fascinating sight for anyone driving a bike or any other vehicle. You kick it into high gear and floor it, reaching speeds of more than 120kph and why won’t you? The coast is clear, right?
Well, this story is something, which will get you goosebumps and you will think not just twice but many times before speeding up your bike.
Let’s take a ride to the story!
Crashing your car at high speed is what makes car accidents fatal.
This is the reason why there are speed limits. Car companies usually perform destructive testing to ensure the safe design standards.
Usually, it’s the Germans who we find continually pushing the crash test envelope, but this time…
…Russian testing site decided to crash a car at 120miles/hour.
Countries like Germany follows traditional crashing speed, which is 40mph.
For a difference, they made crashing by 50mph, just as China makes any of their cars appear safe by testing at 35mph. But 120mph? It’s never been done before.
What happens when you run your vehicle at 120miles/hour and hit another car?
This Russian testing snapshots will pretty much sum it up.
The impact is horrific!
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!
They used high-speed cameras to film the footage of this crash test video.
The footage clearly demonstrates the utter destruction of a high-speed impact.
The car is unrecognizable after its high-speed collision.
Doesn’t this car seem to have 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.
Would seeing such devastation from these controlled accidents encourage people to slow down on the road? If not… Then what will?
