Although most people would have the same healthy fear of driving off a cliff as they have of diving off of a five-story building, most aren't afraid to drive 40 mph, and many overestimate their chances of surviving a crash at that speed.
A car travelling 40 mph would strike a tree, wall, or bridge abutment with the same force as a car hitting the ground after falling off a 50-foot cliff. An unrestrained occupant within that car, moving at 40 mph, would strike the windshield or dashboard with the same force he or she would experience hitting the ground after a fall from a five-story building.
