Before a car is roadworthy and deemed safe enough to be sold to the general public, a comprehensive series of tests must be carried out on it to ensure that it’s not going to pose a special risk or danger to anyone who buys it. Some of the most extreme tests see that each make and model are smashed to bits, seeing how well they perform in the event of a road traffic accident.
Car crash tests can take many forms, but one of the best ways to test safety for a family vehicle is ‘The Rollover Test’. You’re about to see exactly what happens in a rollover test in the video below. A 1998 Ford Expedition is put through its paces with a family of crash test dummies inside. The resulting carnage is guaranteed to make sure that you never travel in a car without your seat belt on ever again…
This is shocking stuff. But when you watch it, just be glad that the bodies flying way up into the air are just dummies. This time.
