How do the police work out how fast a car was going when it started breaking? Or what speed a car was travelling at when it hit a pedestrian? In a head-on collision, what difference does it make if you are in the heavier car or the lighter car? How are cars designed to protect their occupants in a crash? What about pedestrians and cyclists? Find out about the physics of a car crash, the engineering behind designing safer cars and why speed really does make a difference between life and death.
