A driver of a car going 95.0 km/h suddenly sees the lights of a barrier 39.0 m ahead. It takes the driver 0.95 s before he applies the brakes, and the average acceleration during braking is -10.0 m/s2.

What is the maximum speed at which the car could be moving and not hit the barrier 39.0 m ahead? Assume the acceleration rate doesn't change.
