What should you do if you are about to be rear ended by a car approaching at high speed while stopped behind another car?

According to a NASCAR driver – being a sportswriter gets you into some odd conversations – you should:

  1. Take your foot off the brake pedal.
  2. Bring your feet back so your calves are touching the front of the driver’s seat.
  3. Cross your arms across your chest.
  4. Relax your body as much as possible.

Basically, you want to let the car’s safety equipment do its job instead of trying to protect yourself.
