Angry Motorcycle mating with car.



This is serious man, you guys take it easy on the bikes in the City.

The Honda rider was traveling at such a "very high speed", his reaction time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident. Swedish Police estimate a speed of ~250 KM/h (155mph) before the bike hit the slow moving car side-on at an intersection. At that speed, they predicted that the rider's reaction time (once the vehicle came into view) wasn't sufficient enough for him to even apply the brakes. The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them. The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 10 feet from where the collision took place.

All three involved (two in car and rider) were killed

instantly. This graphic demonstration was placed at the Stockholm Motorcycle Fair by the Swedish Police and Road Safety Department. The sign above the display also noted that the rider had only recently obtained his license.

At 250 KM (155 mph) the operator is traveling at 227 feet per second. With normal reaction time to SEE-DECIDE-REACT of 1.6 seconds the above operator would have traveled over 363 feet while making a decision on what actions to take. In this incident the Swedish police indicate that no actions were taken.

I missed having my Looser Cruiser (Mini Van) taken out 2 days ago 3 houses away from my house. A guy with a
Firebird ripped through my residental street at about 100 clicks, right through a stop sign, I had the right of was as it's only a two way stop. The good thing is I always look for cars though I have the right of way.

My van would have been shattered as the whole body is fibre glass and all my work tools and electronic test equipment would have been history, I might have been history too.

Ouch. I actually wondered how this guy got into the car myself. Thought he would have been chopped in half as well.

I remember reading somewhere that for highspeed impact crashes, you are actually more likely to survive being on a motorcycle. Being that in a car you get trapped/crushed inside... but off a bike if you let go, are wearing proper padding, if you relax your entire body/muscles apparently you can avoid serious injury.

They key is though to actually let yourself go, and keep your body relaxed (most people clench/flex their bodies before an accident, and thats what causes most injury).


Dont remember where I read this though.

Well just remember to let go, if you don't your head often detaches. That's what happened a few weeks ago on Finch Ave near Yonge. Some woman decided to pull a U in the middle of the road so she wouldn't have to wait for the red light, and someone in a motorcycle doing over 150 km/hr crashed into her. It was around 1:30 am.
