This Article Shows What Happens When A Car And A Trailer’s Underride Bar Collide (VIDEO)
In this article we are going to see a couple of crash tests. Luckily, we have only crash dummies inside the cars and not texters or drunk guys. In a few words prepare to see what could basically happen when a car and a trailer’s underride bar collide. You might not believe this, but the bar at the back of most of the trailers nowadays has saved many lives. Yes, that’s correct. And in order to make it perfect, the guys who developed it had to test it a lot. All these crash test were filmed, so now we could enjoy a high resolution, slow motion destruction.
In these crash tests that we are going to watch, the car is a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu. In front of it you are going to see a brand new truck trailer. The first crash test is going to be executed at a speed of 35 MPH. The Chevy is going to rear-end a Manac/Trailmobile trailer. This test was passed successfully and you are going to see it from a lot of angels. There are cameras almost everywhere – inside the car, on the back of the trailer, on all sides of the car. You won’t skip a single thing and all that shown in slow motion.
After the first test we have the following results – 30% overlap test split-screen: Manac(PASSED) Vs. Utility(FAILED).
