Yes, You Can Flip a Car at Slow Speed [Video]
In real life, you normally need quite a bit of speed before turning the wheel gets you into trouble. And of course the electronic nannies are always going to save you.
But there are situations where a car can roll over even at very low speed, as this video shows. The driver of the Honda Civic sedan mounts his left front wheel over the rear tire of a taxi. This is because the plastic and metal on a modern car is designed to give in a crash. If this were an old car with thick steel, the wheels wouldn’t be able to touch.
This sort of incident sometimes happens in Formula One, due to the open-wheel nature of racing.
The driver of the Civic might have contributed to the severity of the accident. It seems the front wheels are steering left, toward the car he’s crashing into. This only facilitates the rollover, but it might be due to the tug of the system.
