What are some examples of the principles of mechanics in car crashes and car safety?

I can only think of one, friction reducing the traction of the tires.

Can you help me come up with two or three more examples?

Thank you.

Energy absorbing bumpers, dashes, and cushions.

Energy absorbing frame (crumples).

Safety glass with plastic laminate inside.

fricton on the brakes and pads.
