"For the pedants, the parked car would be worse due
to extra forces... frictional forces (parking brake if on,
driveline friction if out of gear and parking brake off)."

hmmm..i guess that would explain the _severe_ whiplash when my car was rear-
ended immediately after i had stopped rapidly to avoid the also rapidly
stopped car ahead of me....and the driver behind me was asleep. they hit my
stopped car at ~ 40mph without braking and with me fully stopped but with my
brakes still firmly applied
