I was bored for a few mins. yesterday & found this-

DISTANCE TO STOPPING A CAR
A vehicle travels approximately 1.5 ft per second for each mile per hour. 25 x 1.5 = 37.5. Add to that the average human response time to react to stimuli and apply the brake (1.5 sec again) = 56.25 ft before the vehicle begins to stop. Braking on most decent surfaces with good tires slows you 15 feet per second, per second of braking.
37.5 fps to 0 fps = 2.5 sec to stop

(37.5 fps/2) x 2.5 sec = 46.875 ft braking distance + 56.25 reaction distance

= 103.125 ft between recognition of a danger and your vehicle stopping.

...a lot faster if there is vehicle coming the other way at equal or faster speed in your lane...hence the term head-on collision.

I've had one of those. Luckily, at low speed. Dumb!

We had 6 moose / vehicle head-on collisions over the weekend. One wreck had life threatening injuries, another had non-life threatening injuries, all the others everybody was including the moose where it could get up and walk away.

I have seen on two occasions where a moose has gone through the windshield of tractor trailer killing the animal and the occupants of the rigs. A moose with a rack is a nasty thing to mess with. Always yield to them and if at all possible, stop and let them cross first.

Did you see the re-make a few years back. There were a few subtle changes...I would have to go back and look at the video, but I think all the cops were holding radios instead of guns.
