Why you should NEVER ride in the back of a pick-up truck!

The dramatic recording, created by the Road Safety Program of the Governor of North Carolina, captures a silver car that crashes into the back of a pick-up truck

A crash test video has shown how deadly it could be to ride in the back of a pick-up truck.

The dramatic recording, created by the Highway Safety Program of the Governor of North Carolina, captures a silver car traveling at speeds of 56 mph.

A white pick-up truck can be seen at the other end of the road with fictitious passengers sitting on the bed of the vehicle.

The car hits the truck and the mannequins can be seen flying through the air.

Slow motion playback shows that the moving vehicle completely crushes the back of the pick-up truck.

The clip was produced to warn that it should not be mounted on the bed of a truck, because while it is legal in North Carolina for people 16 years or older to do this, the agency still discourages.

Across the United States and the rest of the world, the rules regarding travel in the back of vans vary.

In Florida, the law requires that if a child under the age of 18 travels in the bed of a van, it must be retained, but otherwise it is legal.

The crash leaves both vehicles completely in ruins and is supposed to act as a visual warning for others

Ohio law prohibits people under the age of 16 from traveling in an unclosed area of ​​a vehicle traveling more than 25 mph.

In California, it is not allowed to walk in the cargo area of ​​a pick-up truck; some exceptions apply.

Published online, the legend of the original clip read: The truck was hit by the car traveling at 56 miles per hour. Buckle up and do not climb into the back of a pick-up truck. & # 39;

The visual warning was posted on Facebook two months ago by the Highway Safety Program of the Governor of North Carolina, but other police units have been sharing the film since then.

The Kitty Hawk Police Department shared the video with the caption: "I should make you think twice before getting on the truck next time."
