Wow massive impact. Because of fuel mpg standards and proffit margins vehicle manufactures will not install factory hidden roll cages .NASCAR drivers regularly wreck at 200 mph and walk away I myself have been in over 30 serious high speed racing wrecks with no injuries maybe just sore for a few days. Thanks to roll cages and 5 point harness
