Underrun Don't Work - Speed Do Kill!

1. Frequently there will be a sticker at trailer bumper stickers that reads "If you can read this, you're too close." Unfortunately, once the guy in the Corvette got "to close," it was "too late."

2. I am still trying to figure out how this happened along the shoulder of the road. Couldn't he find himself a better spot to park his car? I have seen some bad parking jobs before, but never this bad. Let's just hope that the driver was able to escape this mess in one piece, because his car clearly didn't.

3. Is it the fault of underrun that not working? Underrun is designed to stop or lessen the severity of the crash for only some speed (usually max at 60kmh). But this event speed is truly beyond the designated speed.
