Bang, Crash, Whallop

TruckStopper Test 1
How's this for a piece of anti-terrorist technology? And best of all it's Australian-made:

The TruckStopper has been successfully tested for impacts, including stopping a 7.5 tonne truck at 82.3kph.
This, Nicky and I thought, we had to see for ourselves.

Nicky especially likes watching cars crash into things (this is the only reason he watches Formula One) and reckons this ranks right up with the Smart Car* and lamp post crash tests from British car show Fifth Gear.
