Watch and Learn: Motorcycle vs Tractor Crash Test [Video]
We'd rather say they're as educative as it gets, for both riders and drivers, as they depict how bad things go when the going gets really tough. We believe that watching the way a motorcycle and its rider crash into the tractor could raise some hairs on many people's backs, and this could make them a bit more careful when they are out on public roads.
Studies show that such a crash happening at 70 km/h (43.5 mph) leaves most riders with virtually zero chances of survival. Riders are 4 times more likely to die when crashing into a tractor than other road users.
Disrespect and error when turning are the most common causes of accidents, studies show, while the tractor drivers are responsible for the crashes in more than half of the accidents. So really, please watch out: tractor drivers – for riders, and the other way around, since such an encounter may be the last one.
