Don't be ridiculous. 70MPH to 0 in 10 feet would be a mean of about 15G, and that'd definitely kill you if eyeballs-out. And it might kill you eyeballs-in as well.

That Mini achieves a mean of 0.95G according to your figures, so 18MPH to 0 is plausible in 10 feet.

15MPH to 0 in 10ft is rather common.

Which is surprisingly fast, wouldn't you say?
