Car Vs Train – A Public Service Video From Top Gear

Top Gear takes a hard look at the newest breed of thrill seeking junkies- elderly people. Statistics show that older drivers are three times more likely to get into a car accident than their younger counterparts. These senior citizens get their rush by doing some incredibly stupid stuff, like driving their cars into the sea or ignoring rail crossing signals.

To combat and educate these senior dare-devils of the dangers involved with such high-risk behavior, Top Gear put together this segment to demonstrate the devastating effects of a direct train hit on a vehicle parked on the railway tracks.
