I can't believe the airbags went off at such a slow speed... His head didn't even move forwards.

Maybe the rear tires were still spinning which made the computer think it was going faster than it actually was?

Was that a concrete barrier? If so, that Vette took it like a champ.
Seemingly very little damage considering how far he knocked that thing.

The barriers were on wooden blocks, probably to make them easier for a forklift to move.

The downside, it let the concrete block slide off them like it was greased.

But yes, where were the brakes? He wasn't going anywhere near fast enough that he could have stopped faster than the barrier stopped him.

Yup, sucks. I wonder what his insurance company will think as we're certain they have seen the video footage... Ouch

What's worse than doing something stupid?

Doing it in front of a crowd.

With country music playing.
