Granted this is safety testing but it just goes to show...how fun watching a massive lorry topple down a slope can be! 

There are lessons to be learnt in all this, namely that bigger is not always safer, but what you will take away most is that testing guys have all the fun. Watch this Volvo 850 be smashed, rammed and battered before being dragged off a moterway causeway and onto the ground below. The wreck that is left is not something anyone would want to be a part of, unless you were pulling the ropes!
