    Things That Reminds us to Ride Safe

    Post by danielleo on Sun Feb 15, 2009 9:14 pm

    Got a mail from bro Ironhorse.

    Keep your eyes open
    this is something to think about!!!

    See the Motorcycle?


    How about now?






    A picture is worth a thousand words.

    The Honda rider was travelling 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 (155 mph) 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 travelling at 227 feet per second. With normal reaction time to SEE-DECIDE-REACT of 1.6 seconds the above operator would have travelled over 363 feet while making a decision on what actions to take. In this incident the Swedish police indicate that no actions were taken.

    In other words, they didn't even have time to say, 'Oh, ####!'

    PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST... MIGHT SAVE A LIFE!

    Even emergency braking also will cover a lot of distance due to the speed
