    That kind of attitude can lead to all manner of complications, and may well knock the shine off your holiday with the GF.

    thats an impressive demo. however, that steel plate attached to the front of the truck eliminates any crumpling affect the truck cabin might contribute to the crash (little if any)

    The first cars hit take the brunt of the impact so the two last cars are just shoved as opposed to hit. If you were in the 106 then the firebrigade would take a few days getting you out of the glove box.

    Most trucks don't have much of a crumple zone. You are the crumple zone.

    Now put that scenario here in Oz with one of the old style Kenworths or Macks with an impact speed in excess of 60 kmh and good night if you're in the first 4 cars.

    So think twice before you cut in front of a large truck. Most interstate truckies hate taking their foot of the throttle and to them cars are just like annoying bugs.

    When I was in France we went for lunch with one of the bosses. His wife's car was a teminal R18 with rust holes in the doors were big enough for the cat to lurk in. They planned to scarp it before winter set in.

    See also the black CX in 'revenge of the pink panther.' (Chases 504 taxi) It hits something and the bog comes out of the doors.

    ...accident?? Interesting how most of the cars don't seem to crumple that much, but become levers to vault themselves over the others and even over the truck cab for some.

    I thought that 605's came standard with a crash avoidance feature? Along with the flux capacitor and energy polarizer?

    Wow! I didnt know that 605 body is that strong. Even when the car behind crashed onto it, the rear remained undisfiured. Thumbs up Peugeot!

    Thats one big disadvantage of a small car: less room to protect occupants in the car when involved in an accident. Anyway, thats why they are not meant for motorways/highways. They are strictly for city use.

    I found that to be very true in France. You don't see large cars in the cities... very few. But once you're on the freeways and long b-roads connecting the cities, you really only see big cars. The French don't travel with their small vehicles at all.
