  • Thursday afternoon in a 60 zone, this 34-year-old motorcyclist was on his way home.

  • It's our job to work out why he never got there.

  • The rider broke his neck on impact here.

  • Having crashed into this car that was turning right.

  • By analyzing the impact, we know he hit the car at 30 km/h.

  • And these marks on the road tell us that he skidded for 21 meters, having braked hard here.

  • When he first reacted, he was doing 68.

  • But let's change one small thing.

  • At 60, the driver would have had more chance to see him properly.

  • He'd have stayed in control and reached this point a moment later.

  • The car would have cleared his path and he'd be home by now.

  • You decide on your speed.

  • The physics decides whether you live or die.

  • (Slowing down won't kill you.)
