Ford water cannon splash
When the water cannon shoots a blast of water from the car, the recoil causes the car to skid. Ford engineers have used this method to test a car's stability control on slick, wet, and dry roads.
The company boasts that the method saves money, since engineers don't have to repeatedly crash cars.
