Originally produced in 2010, these driver education videos are an essential guide to learning the proper procedures before getting behind the wheel of a car. Some statistics may be a little dated. Videos were shot on the old Panasonic HVX-200.
What happens to vehicles and their occupants in crashes is determined by science. "You can't argue with the laws of physics," says Griff Jones, award-winning high school physics teacher who goes behind the scenes at the Institute's Vehicle Research Center to explore the basic science behind car crashes. Using a series of vehicle maneuvers on a test track plus filmed results of vehicle crash tests, Jones explains in anything but lecture style the concept of inertia, the relationship between crash forces and inertia, momentum and impulse, and a lot more. Quote from Paul G. Hewitt, the developer of the "Conceptual Physics" curriculum and author of the best selling text book by the same name: "The video "Understanding Car Crashes: It's Basic Physics" and accompanying teacher's guide are wonderful. The pacing is excellent, the coverage fascinating, and most importantly, the physics is correct. It's a first rate teaching package. I give it five stars!" 2000 | 22 minutes | contains updated footage and additional material for teachers To obtain a DVD copy, go to http://www.iihs.org/videos/default.html
A 20-minute supercut of more than 60 car, truck and tractor-trailer slides, jackknifes, spinouts and loss-of-control driving incidents caught on professional video resulting from my 12-year career of covering winter storms as a freelance news cameraman. ***No one was hurt in any of these incidents*** Footage shows icy roads caused by snow, freezing rain and sleet.

IIHS news release • November 20, 2014 Most minivans struggle with small overlap front crash test; Toyota Sienna earns acceptable rating, TOP SAFETY PICK+ ARLINGTON, Va. — A group of four minivans recently tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for protection in small overlap front crashes shows some of the worst possible outcomes for this type of crash, with only one vehicle performing acceptably. The Nissan Quest, the Chrysler Town & Country and its twin, the Dodge Grand Caravan, all earn poor ratings. The exception to the disappointing pattern is the 2015 Toyota Sienna, which earns an acceptable rating. It joins the Honda Odyssey, which last year earned a good rating in the test, in the ranks of TOP SAFETY PICK+ winners. Full story at http://www.iihs.org/iihs/sr/statusreport/article/49/10/1
Is this police speed trap legal when some speed signs on this road are missing? What speed would you have been doing? Vote in my poll now. I'll post details of what the police say about this when they answer my email. It's very confusing. It's even worse in this video https://bit.ly/2tkfoNg You should always stick to speed limits but it's very hard to do that when you can't tell what the limit is. We were doing a driving lesson about sticking to the new 20mph limit because I had seen the signs going up around the city and wanted to see how it worked. I waited three weeks for a reply from the police before posting this but until they reply let me know what you think is going on here. ► Subscribe to my channel by clicking here https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=1stDrive ► Find out more about me and my driving school at http://www.1stDrive.com
Getting a driver's license is a rite of passage for teenagers, but it also marks the start of their most dangerous years on the road. Teen drivers have much higher crash rates than adults. Fortunately, there are ways parents can help to reduce the risks. This video highlights the stories of three teens whose lives ended too soon and examines common factors such as inexperience, immaturity, and speeding that lead to many crashes involving young, novice drivers.
Teens interviewed speak frankly about their driving habits. They recount crashes and near misses. They describe minding their manners when grown-ups are along for the ride but relaxing the rules when they're with friends.
Institute experts provide insight into the crucial role parents play by enforcing their state's graduated licensing laws, establishing their own rules, and providing plenty of supervised time behind the wheel.
