Crash Test

Crash Tests

I’m not wanting to alarm/upset anyone with above pictures but I came across this site (via Future Feeder) which contains a selection of vehicle crash test videos conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in the US. Whilst seeing this sort of thing is nothing new it sort of brings it home just how violent a collision can be. Luckily car safety is improving but psychological studies have shown that the safer people feel the greater the risks they are prepared to take (i.e. driving faster). I guess this is one problem that will never go away, just don’t take unnecessary risks!
