* In ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'', Dark Helmet orders that his ship be put to "Ludicrous Speed" to capture the fleeing heroes. However it proves to be too fast and they overtake them. Helmet then orders his right hand man to stop the ship, ignoring all warnings that they need to slow down first. The result is that he gets thrown helmet-first into a computer console.

Bonus points for the Emergency Stop lever having a warning below it "Never Use". Even the ship's builders knew that the ship would be going too fast to stop. Something that causes a glare to cross Dark Helmet's face when he sees it in a later playback of the scene.

Added DiffLines:

* Several characters in ''VideoGame/AtlasReactor'' have [[FoeTossingCharge offensive dashes]] that travel either a set distance or until it hits something. If the intended target moves out of the way by using a [[EscapeBattleTechnique dash of their own]], the dash will often carry them way out of position.

*** Subverted with the "race down the mountain" track, where the last checkpoint is lined up perfectly with the second-to-last and the finish line. You can pull off an extreme DukesOfHazzard moment, using one of light trucks (complete with Dixie horn!).

* In ''Videogame/EliteDangerous'', the GenerationShip ''Atlas'' suffered a malfunction that prevented it from slowing down at its destination. The chief engineer and captain hatched a plan to stuff all their shuttles and escape pods with the passengers and supplies, then released them during a close flyby of the planet. The engineer stays behind to coordinate the launch as the ship plows on into the void.

* This is the cause of many car accidents, not to mention the yellow / amber lights on traffic signals: it's a warning that you will be required to be out of the intersection soon. If you ''are'' going too fast to stop, it is acceptable (indeed, preferable!) that you keep going, instead of trying to stop and merely blocking up traffic. Usually, the solid lines approaching the intersection are measured to provide a guide; if the light turns yellow and you haven't reached the solid lines, you should be able to stop in time, otherwise, consider yourself too far along to stop and keep going. This is one of the reasons why drivers in California are infamous for their "beating the yellow light before it turns red" type of behavior, [[DrivesLikeCrazy who turned it into an art form]].
