Jalopnik’s question of the day is “what is the scariest crash test video?”. So far the nominated videos are indeed very violent, but they use crash test dummies, not human test subjects. All of us owe a debt of gratitude towards Colonel John Stapp, who underwent a series of high-G accelerations and decelerations in the name of science and vehicle safety. His initial work was on how to protect military aircraft crewmen when ejecting from a disabled plane, but his research directly led to the development of the aforementioned crash test dummies. His work also underlays just about all modern collision and safety testing.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
