Yeah if you could get out of the way that be the best by all means and honking the horn to warn others some mad SUV is coming..
But if you were pretty much stuck and had no where to go i thought neutral would then transfer all the force to the next car..
then again its not like two metal balls hitting each other like in physics
so ebrake it is
and praying that the celi would be able to take the hit
It is like two metal balls, not all the force is transferred to the second car, an equal force is transferred to the stiking car in the opposite direction.
In neutral, both cars will "stick" together and cause less damage, but you run the risk of hitting another car in the process, making a rear end accident into a multiple car accident, and your air bags will go off.
rev could have gassed the car a little, and got some forward momentum going, and then hit the brakes as the other car hit him, and would have had little to no damage, but, that takes split second thinking.
He's not a race car driver
