Feeling Tipsy?

Promoting safety, transit authorities performed tilt tests on a representative model loaded with sand bags.

Busses had to survive a tilt of 28° before tipping.

Just in case you want to "tilt" the other way

When Will It Tip?

Antonine Education UK - Mechanics Tutorial 4 - Vehicle Stability

Basically once the Centre of Mass vertically passes the outside support (outside of the tire) the object will tip.

Now that you feel safer, let's go out for a spin!

This must be a time before "Health and Safety"
