How to survive a head-on crash

Let us assume it’s 2 AM New Year’s day and you are your family’s designated driver. The roads are clear. You’re thinking about the big game coming up later in the day and all the food you are having; how nice the party was; not one thought about you and your family dying at the hands of a drunk driver.

All of a sudden, out of nowhere you see 2 bright headlights coming straight at you. Oh, My God all my loved ones are going to be killed!

All designated drivers should pre-plan for just a few moments what they should do if this situation should arise. After all, the life you save may be your own.

Seat Belts should be worn by all the passengers. Imagine being thrown out of the family car at 60 miles an hour? Ouch!!!

Ok, now what do as the driver? First reduce your speed, and move as far to the right of the road possible. If there is no open space aim for things that will lessen the impact like bushes, fences, or small trees. If you cannot get out of the way of the oncoming vehicle, TURN YOUR CAR AT AN ANGLE. A glancing blow-even off the oncoming vehicle-is less dangerous than hitting head-on.

It’s physics and as we all stated after a course in physics who would ever use this?
