Crash Tests Indicate Nation's Guardrail System Can't Handle Heavy Electric Vehicles

02 Feb 2024 | Abstracted from AP News

"The nearly 4-ton (3.6 metric ton) 2022 Rivian R1T tore through the metal guardrail and hardly slowed until hitting a concrete barrier yards away on the other side.

"The concern over the weight of electric vehicles stretches beyond vehicle-to-vehicle crashes and compatibility with guardrails...The extra weight will affect everything from faster wear on residential streets and driveways to vehicle tires and infrastructure like parking garages."
