Roadside Crash Testing
It's doubtful most people ever stop and wonder why, or even how, guardrail is designed. Not to mention the thousands of other safety devices on our area highways and roads.
Quite a bit of research and development goes into designing everything from bridge railing to mailbox poles. It's all a matter of trying to make our highways the best in the nation.
The Texas Transportation Institute is one of the groups that routinely tests safety devices to see how it affects cars, trucks, school buses and other vehicles. Their latest video shows the years of research behind the safety devices on you nearest highway.
So if you dig crash test videos...and some of that music from the 70's make sure to click on the video above.
