Car crashes or traffic crashes are among the 10 biggest killers in the world. Human life is a fragile thing indeed, and there are simply way too many crashes happening right now. In the time that it takes you to make breakfast every morning, hundreds of people are killed in crashes around the world.
This is truly astounding, because the number of crash related deaths in the world are more than those in natural disasters. In fact, more people died of traffic crashes in 2015 than the number of military casualties in the Vietnam War.
What makes cars the killers they are?
You may have heard the phrase “when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object”. Thinking about this statement, your imagination is probably running wild. What happens when the two meet? You must be thinking complete and utter destruction.
This is exactly what goes down in a car crash. Two heavy objects made purely out of glass and metal are rushing towards each other at speeds in excess of 60 mph. If, and when, they collide, the world as we know it is going to be torn apart in seconds. Humans seem to love speeding, which means that we are only putting ourselves even more at risk.
