How do bumper cars work?

They work on the principle of Newton’s 3rd law of motion

Newton’s 3rd law of motion:

It is also known as the law of interaction. It states that every action produces an equal and opposite reaction.

This is what happens when one car hits another. They bounce away from each other. Although the vehicle may bounce back, your body is still moving forward. In the real-world, collisions may result in serious injury, but bumper cars are designed with special rubber linings outside of vehicles to protect against damage.  The rubber lining softens the impact of the collision and helps cars bounce off of each other. The rubber acts as a barrier and sometimes readjust the bumper car's direction to create a new trajectory.

Collision is affected by the weight of drivers and the velocity of cars. If two drivers have different mass, one with the high group will move around less similarly fastest car will move the other car more. The law of inertia can have a negative effect on drivers who don't follow safety precautions as the driver is in a continuous moving state.
