When Riaan Bergh spots a car with a tow bar, he's on all fours before he can help himself, checking how the thing is designed and connected, and whether it would pass a strength test. This habit began during the formative years of Bergh's career, when he was responsible for testing a great number of tow bars. Today the science of breaking remains his focus as the business manager of three mechanical testing laboratories at the CSIR.
