You Never Stood A Chance: Shopping Cart Crash Test At 73MPH

August 23, 2016

This is a video from Switzerland's Dynamic Test Center of a shopping cart being crashed into a wall at a record 117.8km/h (~73.2MPH). For reference, if you're ever pushing a shopping cart at 73MPH you better be The Flash or on Supermarket Sweep or I fear something has gone horribly, horribly wrong. I rode a shopping cart down a hill once and I probably only got up to 20MPH and I was almost certain I was going to die. This thing, man....all the food just disintegrates. Also, how did they get a cart that's even capable of going 73MPH when I always get one with a shitty wheel that looks like somebody has been living out of it for the past month. What are these liquids I'm not hungry anymore. Fast food is the best food anyways.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to RM, who bragged about using the self-checkout at 18MPH which, admittedly, I found impressive and brag-worthy.

    Crash into car at 14mph, cart damage 0, car damage $2300.

    Yeah, but the insurance adjuster will refuse to call the thing totaled and will only give the owner enough to put a down payment on a new cart...
