Video of the week: All you need to know about crash testing

There are countless measurements to be taken, modified fluids replace traditional fluids, numerous computers are added and of course, the dummy is set in place. But, to see what exactly happens, you should watch this video released by U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as part of the ‘Inside IIHS’ series, to get a gist of what goes on.
