I guess the Volvo driver needed new underwear after that last one :sick:
Bloody Hell! :jaw:
Unless all trucks are fitted, they're not a lot of use. The Volvo will stop with inches to spare and the truck behind won't.
I'm pretty sure that there wasn't just one set of skid marks left, during the shooting of that video....
Imagine that on the M6 in rush-hour - the Volvo truck successfully stops to avoid a collision due to stalled motorist ahead but gets absolutely t*****d from behind by about 18 white van men who all plough in to him......
I was fortunate to test drive a Volvo XC60 which had this breaking system. They got you to drive at 18 mph over 20 meters and the car braked for you before you hit the inflatable. They then made you do it blindfolded. Was very interesting and after crashing my car at that speed and writing it off, I wished I had £30k in my back pocket to buy one!
