Impact speeds

TrafficSafe 2Most drivers don’t understand that even at low speeds collisions can cause quite a bit of damage to a vehicle, and also can cause significant injuries.

Using the following illustration I hope to show what impact speeds really translate to in real life.

Two cars hitting head-on in a car park at 20kms each is a combined impact speed of 40kms. The damage done would be much the same as if you drove off a three storey building in your car.

Two cars hitting head-on in a school zone at 40kms each is a combined impact speed of 80kms. The damage done would be much the same as if you drove off a twelve storey building in your car.

Two cars hitting head-on on the open road at 80kms each is a combined impact speed of 160kms. The damage done would be much the same as if you drove off a twenty-seven storey building in your car.

A simple illustration, but one that I hope re-enforces the effect of speed in collisions.
