Motorcycle Hit VW at 155 MPH - January 27, 2006, 05:16 AM

Motorcycle Hit VW at 155 MPH

A picture is worth a thousand words.
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.

Wow those VWs are built stronger than I thought. I would have thought it would have been cut with that much force.
