Physics is physics, no amount of electronic safety system will be able to bend the laws of physics. Case in point, this Toyota Yaris that has recklessly crashed into a Proton Wira, as well as F30 BMW 330i.
As you can see from the video below, the Yaris driver - who was driving uphill - has carried way too much speed into a corner, resulting in the Yaris severely understeering and veering to the opposite lane.
The result? The poor red Proton Wira takes a smashing on the front right section, and the secondary impact hit the car recording the footage.
If you need more proof that electronic safety systems cannot save drivers from stupidity, here it is. Such systems can help mitigate an out-of-control situation, it's not a get-out-of-jail-free card. The lesson here? Know the limits of your driving ability and your car.
Furthermore, it's one thing crashing your car in isolation, but to be irresponsible and involve other innocent road users, that's just bone-headed thinking.
Thankfully, the driver of the Wira looks ok, as he can still wave his hand and try to exit his car. As for the Wira itself, it looks like it's beyond repair, seeing how the A-pillar is smashed so badly.
We get it, lockdown has taken a toll on many, cabin fever is a real thing as we're unable to go out for a drive with our cars. When you do get a chance to go for a drive, please remember, do stupid things, win stupid prizes.
Drive safe, folks. If you want to explore the limits of your car, do it at a proper and safe environment (like track days, or closed courses). On public roads, never go all out.
