Head-on crashes involve tremendous amounts of force making them extremely dangerous. The human body does not have a strong chance of surviving one of these crashes if the vehicles are traveling about 43 miles per hour. There are many roadways in the country where the opposite traveling lanes of traffic are not separated by any form of median. This means that it is easy for a vehicle to travel out of its lane and into the opposite lane of traffic in an instant without warning. When a car drives into oncoming traffic,a resulting crash can happen so fast that even an attentive driver will not be able to avoid striking the other car. The best way to avoid being killed in a deadly head-on collision is to avoid roads that do not have center medians or barriers unless they have lower speed limits.
