I was wondering today what it must be like to plow into a guardrail? Is it any different that hitting the cable fence? Do you bounce? I only seen one car hit a guardrail. On 94 west where you exit onto 394. The guy smacked it pretty hard and I don't remember him bouncing off it. It more or less crushed absorbing the impact. These guardrails don't appear to have any shock absorbers so I would guess it might hurt a little.
