Good point for all to consider.
I for one will not be leaving a Bull Mastiff on the back shelf of my
car. However, I will keep in mind the part about firing a box of
Kleenex from a cannon.... just in case our local militia group runs
out of ammo : )
I investigated an accident where a college girl returning home for the
holiday, took an off ramp a little too fast. The car, a Triumph, left
the ramp at low speed and kind of rolled up against a light pole. The
roof was crushed down even with the top of the doors, bearing the
indent of the metal pole. The driver was laying across the seats. Not
one piece of glass was broken, yet the young lady was deceased, having
suffered a very small impact mark on the side of her head.
Sometimes the simple things are what get you.
