Car accidents can result in serious injuries and fatalities, so it is important to be aware of the different types of car accidents that can happen and what you should do to avoid them.

Here are five of the most dangerous auto accidents.

Head-on Collisions

If you find yourself sustaining injuries in a head-on collision, you at least have the opportunity to gain compensation to cover the costs of things like medical bills and loss of earnings.

Contact a head-on collision attorney who has the experience and knowledge required to help you with your claim.

But hopefully, you will not be involved in a head-on collision in the first place.

A head-on collision happens when two vehicles driving in different directions smash into each other. It is widely regarded as one of the most dangerous kinds of car accidents. Unfortunately, head-on collision accidents often result in serious injuries and fatalities.

To avoid them, travel at a slower speed and avoid driving when you are fatigued or when there are severe weather conditions.

Side-impact Collisions

While not quite as dangerous as head-on collisions, side-impact collisions can still result in serious injuries and even fatalities.

They typically happen at intersections and involve one car impacting the side of another, usually head-first.

The reason this type of car accident can result in serious injuries and fatalities is cars have less protection on the side.

To avoid being involved in a side collision, be extra cautious every time you approach an intersection. Make sure you always look both ways before you proceed, even if you have right of way.

Rear-end Collisions

Even though rear-end collisions less frequently result in fatalities, compared to other car accidents, they can still cause major injuries, especially to the neck, spine, and head.

The severity of the injuries will depend on the speed of the vehicle that strikes your car.

To avoid rear-ending another car, never follow too closely, misjudge your braking distance, speed, or drive while distracted.

And to avoid being hit in the rear by another vehicle, make sure you use your mirrors diligently to keep an eye on the vehicles behind.

Rollovers

Rollovers happen when drivers lose control of their vehicles. That could be caused by taking risky sharp turns or driving while fatigued, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or in bad weather conditions.

Car rollovers involve vehicles flipping over onto their sides or rooves.

Rollover accidents are notoriously dangerous and can lead to life-changing serious injuries.

Although larger vehicles are more likely to roll over, smaller cars can also roll over.

To avoid rollovers that are caused by other drivers, give yourself plenty of room, remain alert, and watch for other drivers dodging debris on the road. Not driving in bad weather conditions can also help you to avoid being involved in a dangerous rollover accident.

Pile-ups

A crash involving two cars is dangerous enough, but the situation can become more dangerous when multiple vehicles are involved. In pile-ups, cars can be hit by other vehicles numerous times at very high rates of speed, and often it is impossible for drivers to escape their vehicles.

While drivers who speed and drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs can contribute to pile-ups

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
