Crash Time II: Burning Wheels



If you crash into vehicles going 280kph they will explode. Do this 100 times. The fastest way to get this is by crashing into the big trucks as they cause a big enough explosion to sometimes take out cars next to them.




Crash Time II: Burning Wheels



Try to draw a diagram of the exact crash site and mark where each car was, what direction the car was coming from, and what lane it was in. Write down the date, time, and weather conditions. If there were any witnesses, try to get their names and contact info so that they can help clear up matters if one of the other drivers isn't completely honest about what really happened.


In some cases, though, these feelings can get stronger or last for longer periods of time, keeping a person from living a normal life. Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can occur after a devastating event that injured or threatened to injure someone. Signs of PTSD may show up immediately following the crash, or weeks or even months after.


Teens' inexperience behind the wheel makes them more susceptible to distraction behind the wheel. One in three teens who text say they have done so while driving. Is your teen one of them? Research has found that dialing a phone number while driving increases your teen's risk of crashing by six times, and texting while driving increases the risk by 23 times. Talking or texting on the phone takes your teen's focus off the task of driving, and significantly reduces their ability to react to a roadway hazard, incident, or inclement weather.


In a study analyzed by NHTSA, teen drivers were two-and-a-half times more likely to engage in one or more potentially risky behaviors when driving with one teenage peer, compared to when driving alone. According to the same study analyzed by NHTSA, the likelihood of teen drivers engaging in one or more risky behaviors when traveling with multiple passengers increased to three times compared to when driving alone. In fact, research shows that the risk of a fatal crash goes up in direct relation to the number of teenagers in the car.


Most state GDL laws restrict the number of passengers that can ride in a car driven by a teen. Passengers distract an inexperienced teen driver who should be focused only on the road, increasing the likelihood of a crash. If your state does not have passenger restrictions (FL, IA, MS, SD, and ND), establish rules with your teen about who can ride with them and how many people they can have in their car at one time. Make sure your teen follows the rules you set at all times.


Speeding is a critical safety issue for teen drivers. In 2020, it was a factor in 31% of the passenger vehicle teen drivers (15-18 years old) involved in fatal crashes. A study by the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) found that from 2000-2011, teens were involved in 19,447 speeding-related crashes. There is also evidence from naturalistic driving studies that teens' speeding behavior increases over time, possibly as they gain confidence (Klauer et al., 2011; Simons-Morton et al., 2013). Teens should especially be aware of their speed during inclement weather, when they may need to reduce their speed, or with other road conditions, like traffic stops or winding roads.


NHTSA research tells us that immaturity and inexperience are primary factors contributing to these deadly crashes. Both lead to high-risk behavior behind the wheel: driving at nighttime, driving after drinking any amount of alcohol, and driving distracted by passengers and electronic devices.


Teen drivers are involved in vehicle crashes not because they are uninformed about the basic rules of the road or safe driving practices; rather, studies show teens are involved in crashes as a result of inexperience and risk-taking. Teen drivers, particularly 16- and 17-year-olds, have high fatal crash rates because of their immaturity and limited driving experience, which often result in high-risk behavior behind the wheel. Peer pressure is an especially potent factor. In a recent NHTSA study, teens were two-and-a-half times more likely to engage in potentially risky behavior when driving with a teenage peer versus driving alone. The likelihood increased to three times when traveling with multiple passengers.


At 11 o'clock on the night of January 14, 1932, the defendant Ben Hicks was driving a heavily loaded truck and trailer belonging to the other defendants along the highway four miles east of Tracy. The paved portion of the highway at that point is 21 feet in width with an eight-foot shoulder on either side. A wet snow was falling. The highway was covered with a coating of snow. The truck and trailer were each equipped with two green clearance lights on either side, and the trailer had a red tail-light, all of which were burning at the time of the accident. Until just previous to the accident the driver had experienced no engine trouble. There was no mechanical defect in the truck machine. It was equipped with good brakes. Hicks had observed two other automobiles following behind his truck. The nearest one, which was [2 Cal. App. 2d 61] driven by S.W. Curtis, was about a block behind the truck, when suddenly, without previous warning, the carburetor of the truck began to sputter. Mr. Hicks testified that he immediately turned his truck toward the right-hand side of the highway and reached a point where the right wheels of his vehicle were off the concrete pavement about two feet on the shoulder of the roadway. The truck had run a distance of about one block after the trouble began when he brought it to a stop by applying the brakes. The instant that the truck stopped the plaintiff's Chrysler sedan crashed into the rear end of the trailer and the plaintiff was seriously injured. Hicks said that he had been running at the rate of 25 or 30 miles an hour prior to the time when the carburetor began to sputter. He knew the other cars were following in close proximity. He also knew that the highway was covered with wet snow, and that snow was obscuring the vision to some extent by adhering to the windshield. After he stopped it appears that he merely switched the gasoline feed to another tank and the truck continued to run without further difficulty.


Craig Breedlove was an auto racer who set land speed records back in the day, driving what was actually just a jet engine on wheels across the salt flats out in Utah. In 1964, he strapped himself in and broke a record going faster than 500 mph when his parachute brake deployed incorrectly and sent him careening into some poles, then crashing into a lake where he and his vehicle promptly sank. Craig got out of his safety straps, escaped through the roof of his vehicle, swam to shore, and to his frantic team members, who had arrived lakeside, he said, \u201CFor my next act I will set myself on fire.\u201D


Here in Tennessee, we love that combo of cheek and swagger in the face of self-destructive exploits: we see it now as we watch the TN Legislature crash, sink, and threaten to burn our shared values down in land-speed record time. There is some statewide psychological glitch in play to take the gifts of life so lightly. I\u2019ve been there so I can speak from experience: self-deception. 041b061a72
