Jeremy, personally I would have had nightmares for weeks after an event like that. Btw, this thread is quite informative to me. I do understand that having toad brakes is definitely a plus. Question though, my coach weighs in a a cool 30,000 pounds at the moment (just weighed her). With ratings for a much higher weight with passengers and luggage, how much of a negative effect on the COACH braking distance will my 3400 pound car have?

Nobody says why most safety systems are required.  They just mandate the systems and everyone installs them to be legal.

I can assure you that every safety regulation ever passed, whether highway, building codes, electrical, or any other IS A MEMORIAL TO SOMEONE WHO DIED.
