A real crash scene is a lot worse. I hope you never have to be in a real serious crash or ever have to witness one. Especially one with a fatality. Seeing that body with the sheet over the head is terrifying. It's almost never laid out so neatly.

Gaining consciousness, hanging upside downin the seatbelt, broken glass all around and blood dripping down into my eyes. Been there, done that. I wondered how my car ended up skewed like that too. Simple Newtonian physics. And who knew that hitting at an angle would tear the front wheel right off and flip the car?

our high school didnt have one of those. right after i graduated, some kids (whom i personally knew) died in a drunk driving accident. i never saw the scene, they were south, and i had just gotten home from the opposite direction.
there was never confirmation that the teens had been drinking, but since the guy who hit them was completly hammered, and had a previous DUI, he was charged with everything.

They did this when I was in HS. After the “911 call” played over the loudspeaker informing the police of a “head on collision at the 50 yard line” it was extremely difficult to take it seriously. The part where the fire department used the jaws-of-life to tear off the roof of the car, then proceeded to remove the occupants through the doors seemed a little pointless. The “dead” girl scratching her nose sorta killed the moment too. (Ha! pun!)

My high school did one, but I couldn't see anything. It was a very large school (almost 4000 graduates in my senior class) and even with a simulated 4-car collision, I figure maybe a fifth of the campus saw it.

my highschool just dumped an actual car that was wrecked from a drunk driving accident in the middle of the school every year.

didn't really do much.

We had one at my school my senior year. I spent the entire time calculating how much money they blew with 6 5-pd explosive charges, two junker cars from the scrap yard, the helicopter they flew in ( oh yeah, they were a rich school. ), the two trucks worth of fire fighters, the ambulance and the professional actors.

Given that the only things I knew the price for at the time were the cars and the explosives, I figured that they blew about $1,500 between the junkers and having the bomb squad come out and blow up some 5 gallon buckets of black powder charges. I'm willing to guess the whole deal probably cost about $10,000. Just to tell us not to get wasted and go driving.

I don't get it. Is there a major problem with people drinking and driving with bombs in the car where you come from? I don't get the BP charges.

My high school had one of those simulations too.

Funny thing was watching all the cars drive down the street, slowing down, wondering what was going on in the senior parking lot.

They set them off at the moment of the “crash”. Because apparently when you get into a drunk driving accident it's not like a normal accident. Instead, there are explosions of flame the fly 40 ft into the air and melt plastic buckets which are rigged to the side of your car by the fire department shortly before you leave the bar.

Then, if you're lucky, you go flying off the side of a cliff where one of your three equally drunk prom dates will be horrifically impaled on portions of the dash board upon impact.
