Speed - "In the last 5m of braking you wipe off half your speed."

There’s been some recent discussion in another (tragic) thread about speed and accidents. So I thought it apropos to share a video I saw at an advanced riding course last year which illustrates what a huge difference even a few km/h in speed makes in the outcome in an emergency braking situation. Probably a repost but the message is worth repeating.

I remember a very similar one at the Roadcraft Course last year, has always stuck with me, EVERYONE needs to understand this, EVERYONE needs to watch this.
