Footage of new pedestrian safety device being tested in Germany.
Pedestrian safety device demonstrated - Berlin 1927. Germany.
Germany a trial of a protective net attached to the front of an automobile for the safety of any pedestrians the car might attack. Shot looking down a road; several men stand at side watching; and the victim stands in the middle of the road. Automobile approaches him from behind. It hits the pedestrian but he is scooped up in a curved net attached on a padded frame; sort of like a chair.
His hat flies off but the man himself is unscathed. Next; demonstration of this seen from the side; possibly even more hilarious. The man stands there looking a bit nervous. The car is going at a fair pace at the moment of impact; and again it scoops him up & he rides away in the safety net w/ his legs sticking straight out.
