    40 mph bumps you back and only breaks your shin?
    lol
    I saw a guy get tagged by a car doing about 10 and he didn’t get up again.

    It is almost certainly 40 kph (which is 25 mph).

    Almost certainly?

    How so?

    Any reasoning at all?

    blobalob

    For the reason you gave yourself. Is it likely that this safety ad is suggesting that a kid would be OK if hit at 40mph rather than 60? If it is, it’s shitty advice.

    stupid americans can’t tell kph apart from mph

    I’m Canadian, dumbshit.

    TrAyVon'S GhOSt, nuCca

    Oh and we use km. But the ad is almost certainly American and it’s in mph. Stupid self centred Europeans…

    To quote yourself:

    Almost certainly?

    How so?

    Any reasoning at all?

    Maybe he was just comfortable down there.

    Firstly, kilometres, not miles (no, it’s not American). Secondly, the car is going 40 when the driver starts to react and hits the brakes, not on impact.

    he can command the shards of his entire shattered body to reincorporate yet he cant fix his ankle. worst superpower ever.

    Cause doubling your speed increases force of impact by a factor of x4. So going 20km/h slower would cut the force of impact in half. So slow down at intersections where most vehicle on pedestrian collisions happen.

    I know I’m a bit late to the party, but look at the license plate on the car. It’s too narrow and wide to be a US plate, so it stands to reason that it’s in kph.
