Default OT: Car crash tests are pointless

Why don't car crash tests take account of braking ability? Not crashing at all is better than doing well in a crash.

So you have a car crash test without a crash. How is that a crash test?

Wouldn't it be a braking test then?

The crash test is used to determine the Euro NCAP rating, which is supposed to be how safe the car is. But it's only half the story. It would be like saying your car is faster than mine because it has a bigger engine, and ignoring the fact that mine is half the weight.

Brake performance seldom matters.* Most people are busy texting so they never apply the brakes.

But if you're selling a "safe" car it could have automatic brakes with radar.

I drove at 90 with a broken arm while texting, multitasking is easy for humans. Which is already required for driving by the way - steering, braking, changing gear, indicating, .....

Mine does but I'm not prone to test it. Says it prevents 85% of head on
collisions. But, if cars do crash it is good to know which are best for
survival.
