Volvo Safety Demo Goes Wrong

Volvo invited a bunch of reporters to see them launch an empty Volvo S60 at the back of a truck in a test of their crash avoidance system. It didn't work.


No one was hurt and the company claims a technical reason having to do with the battery is the cause. It's funny... unless you're a car company who sells cars on the basis that they're the safest on the road.
