(Black and white image of bike riding into camera. Text on screen “Braking distances.”)

Person one: Can your bike out-brake a car? Let’s try it.

(Footage of bike riding across frame, camera follows bike. Changes to three panels of a bike, car and another bike. Text appears on bottom of screen with arrows referencing what kind of vehicle is shown. The left panel is “Bike (ABS)” the middle panel is “Car (ABS)’ and the right panel is “Bike (non-ABS).” All vehicles are driving towards the camera, video freezes.)

These vehicles are all travelling at 50 kilometres per hour. They will apply their brakes at the same time.
