Not a Skoolie, but same chassis more or less

Found this and was stunned by it. I can't imagine hitting this with a person inside. I assume a bus, being built on the same chassis, would perform similarly.

Here's a news article about it...that was a 50MPH hit! Shows it in real time and several other angles too... worth a watch!

That is a barrier designed to destroy trucks! For embassy/military base protection. High enough to miss the frame rails and strip the chassis off the mounts. Not what a normal traffic barricade will do.

I want to see what happens when a fully loaded truck or semi hits that.

People say dognoses are safer because you have an extra couple feet in front of you, and may be right at 35 or under, but 50 and above it doesn't matter when you have 10+ tons behind you pushing.

I'd like to see a car go through that.
I'm hungry!
