While we often take the safety features of today's cars for granted, it's important to recognize that it has taken many years of innovation to reach the current levels of safety.
One such video that has been circulating on the internet depicts a head-on collision between a 90s Ford F150 pickup and a Mitsubishi 3200 GT sports car, both of which only had the passive safety features available at the time of their manufacture.
The crash-test shows the severity of the damage inflicted on both cars, making it clear that surviving such an accident would require great luck.
The comparison with modern-day crash-tests reveals the advancements in safety technology, such as road-scanning radars, which have made it possible for passengers to walk away unscathed from similar accidents.
This video serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of continued innovation in safety technology, as well as the value of investing in modern cars with the latest safety features.
