It is not something you would ever voluntarily want to do, but knowing how to safely jump from a moving vehicle could save your life if you get into an accident or another dangerous situation on the road and need to leave the vehicle before it has stopped moving. You should bear in mind that if you do jump from a moving car, there is a high possibility that you will be badly injured, whether you know how to jump properly or not, so you should never attempt this unless you absolutely have no other choice. Here is how to do it if you feel that you must.
- Look out for a soft landing. Throwing yourself from a moving vehicle onto concrete or tarmac is bound to cause more injuries than if you land on grass or another softer surface. If you have time, keep an eye out for a soft area to land than just on the road itself.
- Pick a spot ahead of the car, bearing in mind that because your car is moving you will land ahead of where you are now, so keep an eye out for obstacles which could injure you.
- Open the car door firmly to make sure that it is not going to try to close on you in the middle of your jump, as this could injure you more badly than just jumping.
- Jump facing towards the back of the car and with your arms held around your chest. This should stop you from sustaining fatal or very serious injuries and will stop you from being run over by your own car after you land.
- Try to keep your head tight against your body and aim your torso at the ground so it takes the brunt of the landing.
