Cars being crashed at 125mph is just as terrifying as you would think

| blog, L&B World, World | August 31, 2015

It might come as a surprise, but driving a car at 200kph (125mph) is pretty dangerous.

Just to prove this blindingly obvious fact, a Swiss company has been filming some controlled simulations of 200kph car crashes.

The results will no doubt want to make you ease of the accelerator a little.

Crumple zones and seat-belts won’t help anyone at this speed, particularly when one of the vehicles is sandwiched between another car and a barrier.

While the number of road deaths in the UK has been steadily decreasing over the past decade, 2013 still saw 785 car users die on Britain’s roads.
