Stafford Beer made the interesting suggestion that instead of cars being

You'd hope to God that nobody ever ran in the back of you....

Well, all that would do is press you further into your seat,
causing at worst, neck problems -- the same result as you
get now when someone runs into the rear end of your car.

It's the person who rear-ends you who would meet
the dashboard with its spikes.
Provided there was nothing in front of you.
In which case the car, after being accelerated by the impulse from the car behind, would come to a sudden stop. You, however, would keep going 'till you hit the dashboard, steering column, windscreen, the passenger in front, etc.
