How to Jump out of a Moving Car (And Survive)

I’ll assume that you’re reading this post on a smartphone and you’re in a hurry. Your time is valuable—so very valuable—at this particular moment. That’s why it should be used by only an elite stuntman who knows what he’s talking about. Adam Kirley is such a stuntman. He was a body double for James Bond actor Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. You can see him in that movie fighting on a crane and crashing an Aston Martin.

Now is not the time to get distracted, so please stay focused. Carefully read and follow Kirley’s instructions here. Once you jump, remember to distribute your body weight as broadly as possible:

You need to exit with your back facing the direction you’re travelling. Jump out with your right shoulder (remember, we’re on the left-hand side of the car) closest to the ground, and roll over your left shoulder. Once you hit the ground, the longer the time you can spend rolling over the biggest possible area of your body, the better: the key thing is to disperse the energy over time and surface area. Once you’re spinning and rolling, there’ll be a lot of centrifugal force so keep your body tense, prevent your limbs from flailing about, and go with the roll.
