SNOW & ICE Vs. COLLISION



An Auto tip for those brave enough to venture driving in the snow and ice, it is a prudent idea to never exceed the speed your are traveling than that of the speed you will collide with another solid object, such as another vehicle, road banks, trees, enbankments and hills.


Example; 1-4 miles per hour and colliding with another vehicle is usually a minor fender bender, of sorts.


Accordiing to the NHTSA by driving at between 8 and 12 miles per hour or faster at the time of impact the airbags will deploy. This means that airbags only deploy during impacts that are likely to cause injury. specific to “moderate to severe” frontal or near frontal crash, as they are designed to open at 4-5 miles per hour in a collusion. “moderate to severe” frontal or near frontal crash.
