But in reality the transit scenario is completely different, full of dangerous situations. Among them, a dramatic situation has existed since the beginning of the automotive industry, in which the occupants of smaller vehicles are totally defenseless, cowardly subjugated, waiting for the next second , to be inexorably decapitated, killed like animals in a slaughter house.
This is the case in collisions of cars against the rear of trucks and buses which are like HIDDEN TRAPS FOR HUMANS , in case they are not equipped with reliable rear underride guards, at the correct position. In this situation, all the above mentioned developments are useless.
In countries like Brazil, the incidence of rear collisions is so high that from the 25,000 fatalities per year, 33% or 8,250, are due to rear collisions. And this is a partial figure since it does not cover all streets and public roads of the country, and incredibly, deaths occurring in hospitals hours, days or weeks after such an accident, are ignored statistic wise, what is another crime.
CONCLUSIONS: REAR OF TRUCKS ARE SERIAL KILLERS AND BRAZIL IS THE WORLD CHAMPION IN INNOCENTS DECAPITATIONS!
