Did You Know?


When they look at the video footage of Cal's crash the two cars are in the wrong position. The cars are positioned as if they stopped at the moment of impact. This would only happen if they were both going very slowly. Cal was going slow, having just started again after waiting for the light. The other car was going much faster because his light was already green. They hit hard enough that they would have bounced leaving Cal's car close to the other side of the intersection on the same side Cal came from. The other car would have been knocked slightly off course by the impact but would have continued in the same general direction, ending up on the far side of the road from where Cal's car would have ended up.

A Flawed Masterpiece
29 August 2011 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

The series was reaching its end when this offering was made (although the writers/cast may not have KNOWN that).

As usual, our twitchy hero acts everyone off the screen - but is let down by a major faux pas from the writers.

The plot involves a twist on the Munchausen Syndrome By Proxy which beggars belief, but is at least an ORIGINAL IDEA, which you will NOT see coming, I promise.

However, the writers failed to do their research. The devices the emergency services have, which trigger traffic signals to go green in front of them, only over-ride max times and computer instructions.

They DO NOT and CAN NOT over-ride the signals' basic safety protocols.

If, as shown in this episode, they caused green conflicts (greens in both directions) or even instant changes (no ambers or intergreens) the EMERGENCY vehicles would leave a series of COLLISIONS in their wake.

As you may have gathered, I am a retired traffic systems engineer.

However, that said, this episode is possibly the most exciting and unusual of the series. So WATCH it - but do not worry the next time you are driving.

If someone T-bones you at a signal-controlled crossing - they will merely be DRUNK.
