This is what a head-on collision at 124 mph looks like (Spoiler: It’s not pretty) (Video)

Scary stuff...


So this is why there’s a speed limit.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget what sort of powerful machines we travel around in at high speeds every day.

Watching this will bring that notion into sharp focus. The Dynamic Test Center in Switzerland recently conducted a series of high-speed crashes involving a range of cars travelling at 200 km/h – which is around 124 mph.

Although none of us (hopefully) reach such speeds in our everyday runarounds, it is startling to watch big lumps of metal shatter like matchboxes.

Drive safe…
