On impact, they crumple up in a controlled manner, which stops the force energy reaching the occupants and injuring them. The crumple zone dissipates the energy. Advantage :they save lives by stopping forceful energy. In the case of the side of the car: if the side doors are crumple then the people in the car would be crash because there is not much space for the crumble zone to absorb the force and redistribute. also, if the roof of the car is crumple, then when the car collapses , people in the car will be crash. we...
