ADAC - Crash Test: holiday luggage can kill
Suitcase, folding chairs and coolers must with in the summer, but are often incorrectly loaded in the car. This makes them a deadly threat, such as ADAC shows in a recent crash test. Whether the luggage was stowed away for the summer good or bad in the car in an accident is of great importance for the people on board. This proved an ADAC crash test: While correctly wrapped and tied with a few simple steps charge in head-on crash (50 km / h) caused only slight damage to the interior of poorly secured luggage is completely demolished, the occupants are at least seriously injured. If pieces of luggage rolling to the back of the passengers, they work 30 to 50 times heavier than they actually are - the human lumbar and heads do not hold the stand Also frequently observed in summer months when passengers casual sitting with his legs on the shelf is extremely dangerous, as the ADAC test shows that the legs are thrown towards the head, and this strikes with great force on the lower leg - severe injuries are also the consequence. The ADAC recommends for holiday trips to use only cars with lashing grommets and secure the luggage to it. Also, the vehicle seat belt should be used to secure cargo. Heavy objects are down, especially heavy luggage should be left under the footwell. The rear seats should not always be folded, because they can serve as a protective wall. Loose items you stow best in a transport box, break dangerous things you should wrap up in blankets. The trials with correct and incorrect loading of a typical holiday movie in our cars shows all the details. The - absolutely massive - the risk of injury can be easily prevented when the loading of the vehicle takes a little more time and observe the following rule: Every object in the vehicle that can be propelled in a frontal crash to the front, shoots at only 50 km / h impact speed of 30 to 50 times its weight force (weight) to the front (!) - and take in the worst case, the head of the front occupants. Imagine yourself in front of loading, the goods would be 50 times as heavy. This gives a sense of assurance of adequate strength. Heavy items and luggage getting down and as directly as possible to the rear seat backrest Only lightweight objects up A stable Cargo Barrier or a network is always important when it is loaded on the height of the rear seat backrest may cover the entire load with blanket and with the help of straps (cross over and threaded into the lashing eyes on the cargo floor) secure Beware of sports equipment unsecured in the vehicle compartment. Therefore skis and wheels better on appropriate support systems or in a roof box The occupants must of course always be secured with seat belt and child safety seat. Important: even when sleeping a correct and upright seating position must be guaranteed. Are extremely dangerous example Feet on the dashboard! No beverages in glass bottles in the interior use (sharp splinters from the bursting!) Not basically fold down the rear seats, they serve as an important support Methodology & background: As a representative of a typical station wagon for the BMW 5 body (built 1997-2004) was tested on a crash sled with an impact speed of 50 km / hr. This corresponds to the DIN 75410-2 assurance testing charge. The vehicle was equipped with 2 adults dummies forward. It a try with good and poor load securing and with good and poor occupant protection was driven respectively. Example loads: Case 3 A 25 kg ` 1 cool box 10 kg 2 garden chairs a `2 kg 1 Garden table 10 kg 1 Getränkebox 10 kg 2 folding deckchairs a `4 kg 1 canister windscreen washer 10 kg various Kinder-/Strandspielsachen 5 kg Tips for Consumers: Not basically fold down the seats, they can also serve as a protective wall. First look for alternatives Objects can never stand freely on the platform; forbear always on solid surfaces such as the back seat Support rear seat belts through diagonally closed when no one is sitting there Pay attention to proper weight distribution; heavy objects down, not place objects over 25 kg possible behind people Especially stow heavy objects possibly in the foot If possible use with vehicle seat belt to secure load Original source - ADAC website: http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/adac-im-einsatz/motorwelt/ladungssicherung.a spx?ComponentId=178044&SourcePageId=6729
