Correct observation.

It's always the rattlesnake that gets the blame when it bites the one that steps on it.

Not the windshield, but if possible try to jump over the very rigid edge of the car's roof. I know that I can't react that fast, but if one could, and the crash was inevitable, that would be a smart move to make. Probably lay 'er down to slide under a semi trailer, too, and miss the reefer generator hanging under the trailer at the same time....

Definitely! If you don't have time to lay 'er down before you hit the car, climb up on 'er instead!

This proves it! Mandatory helmet laws put other motorists in danger!
