Understanding Car Crashes: It’s Basic Physics

PA Traffic Injury Prevention Project Audio/Visual Library

  • Quick Overview: Loaned for 10 days – Limit 1 per order

LOAN LENDING POLICIES: The PA TIPP audio/visual library is a free lending library available to child care providers, health care professionals, teachers and community organizations within the state of Pennsylvania.  The loan period is ten (10) working days.  The only cost to you is postage to return the video to our office.  The video will be sent to you by UPS from our office with an information sheet stating the value of the material, the date it should be returned to us and the return procedure to follow.

We ask that you return the video(s) to our office by UPS, Federal Express, USPS Priority, or some form of insured, guaranteed/traceable mail.  This will protect the material for other users in case the video is lost or damaged.  You will still be billed for any lost video material that is untraceable and uninsured.

Special arrangements can be made with our office if you would like to schedule the videos for specific dates or timing beyond 10 days.

Understanding Car Crashes: It’s Basic Physics – by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.  What happens to vehicles and their occupants in crashes is determined by science.  “You can’t argue with the laws of physics,” says Griff Jones, an award-winning high school physics teacher.  Throughout the video, Jones relates classroom physics to the real world of cars and car crashes, explaining why some of the choices we make about the cars we drive – and how we drive them – can make a difference in whether we survive.  It all comes down to physics.  (VHS-22 minutes) Middle/High School
