How 124 MPH Crash Looks Like

Nowadays all sorts of agencies are tasked with developing anti-speeding campaigns. However, sometimes it’s best to simply use the power of example.

The footage, which comes from an European organization that handles safety matters, brings us some of the most brutal accident testing moments we’ve seen in quite a while.

The velocity many drivers dream about before getting their licenses, namely 200 km/h (124 mph), was the one used as a reference point here. You’ll get to see cars traveling at this speed crashing into stationary vehicles. This is also a good occasion to compare frontal and rear impacts

In fact “crashing into” doesn’t quite cut it here. It’s more like “obliterating”. And to make matters worse, concrete barriers are also used.

Some might say that such videos are pointless, since that kind of speed would destroy any car and kill the humans inside it, regardless of the protection systems available. However, as we said, the point is to determine drivers not to reach this kind of speeds on restricted public roads.
