A Lesson for the Rest of Us
NASCAR implemented a number of safety measures to prevent such accidents. In addition, the unique construction of the racing cars makes serious injury or death much less likely than in years past. However, this does not tell the whole story. For the average American, a crash at any speed is serious. Furthermore, higher speed accidents are much more likely to result in severe injury or even death. In addition, such accidents happen in normal vehicles without the same safety equipment. Secondly, for regular crashes there are usually not medical professionals just feet away to tend to the injured parties. All of this increases the chance of long term complications.
