The problem is slowing down in any useful way from those speeds when the light goes red.

We take customers to 'advanced' driving courses every month. While I really enjoy it, there is a test that has a 80+% failure rate which is letting people brake from 100kph, on a straight, dry, wide section of track as late as they think is safe before they hit a cutout of a dog (we used to use a cutout of a small human till a client broke into tears).

Most people brake too late, brake too softly, and even tough they could probably steer around the cutout when they know they're going to hit it - they are fixated at looking at it so they drive right into it.

I'll admit we've only ever had one Mondi like chap who accelerated into the cutout   :)

From 200+K's, even if he attempted braking 'early' he'd have still been a missile through the intersection.

Whatever the reasons it's all a terrible outcome.

LULZ!!!

We did an advanced driving course down at Calder Park once. The humans where made of a foam rubber stuff......

Hand brakeys and going sideways into the crowd will not get you a pass as I found out.   :D

Been there done that quite a few times........
first time as a passenger in a DeTomaso Pantera at over 120mph past Parafield Airport as a 12 year old followed by the same ride in an XU1 owned by a lady in her 70's. Driver of both cars was my brothers boss doing a tune up for customers.  :tilt:
He went on to become the head engineer for the Honda US and World Moto X teams for about 20-30 years.

Familiar with this as I am in Sing very often......he was a Chinese National mid 30s who is involved in "investment"  out of Singapore, passenger was a Asian Prostitute also killed outright .......wife was a home with a couple little ones and about 7 months pregnant.

There is a growing resentment locally with the Chinese new money coming in and not respecting the country
