    arent most deaths from RTAs due to the victim's head hitting the bonnet/windscreen of the car as their legs are taken from beneath them by the initial impact? so surely a child whose shoulders are the same height as the top of the engine are more likely to survive than any other group as they are the least likely to suffer head trauma as they are merely thrown clear of the car suffering impact wounds to their torso

    therefore all statistics used are flawed

    I don't know about the statistics but I do know they there's a chance you'll survive such an accident. I was once hit by a car driving 20-25, maybe 30 mph (the old **** didn't see the red light) and I was fine. It didn't even hurt. I was 10 or 11. I guess I was really lucky then.

    Just wanted to share my story with you.

    3 Questions!

    1. What the **** is that thing?
    2. Where can I get one?
    3. Can I borrow yours?

    When was the last time you picked up a kid from an RTC?

    ****.

    You're all misinterpreting the advert. If you were driving at eighty, the kid wouldn't have crossed the road by that point; so she would have be fine and you would have got to Tesco twice as fast. Everyone wins when you speed.

    Let's do A level physics...

    momentum = mass x velocity
    force= 1/2 x mass x velocity x velocity

    1150kg renault clio.

    force @ 30mph = 495000 kg.mph^2
    force @ 40mph = 880000 kg.mph^2

    So, hitting at 40mph instead of 30mph gives a 78% increase in the force said kid gets hit with. That stat suddenly doesn't seem so far fetched huh?
    I don't even do A level physics yet and I know that one of those equations is wrong

    Why don't you, y'know, just not hit a child in the first place?
    Sometimes the temptation is just too great. :woo:

    The result is right - there's a large increase in energy for a small increase in velocity.

    The kid goes to purgatory.

    But the equation is wrong, Kinetic Energy = 1/2 x m x v2
