Here are some better videos I found on this page: http://www.highway11northbay.com/video-demo.html These vidoes show the system and how it works in slow motion. Apparently the truck was going 90 km/h (55 MPH) and had a weight of 60,000 kgs (132,000 lbs). Here is more info on this page: http://www.highway11northbay.com/ When I was out in western Canada, I remember seeing many runaway ramps in the mountians. However, they were all just basically steep ramps. This system is the a dragnet system where the truck hit a number of nets, which spool out and absorb the impact. Apparently their are very few of these type of runaway ramps in North America.
