Inertia
When the car stops suddenly the feet come to rest where is due to inertia, the upper portion of the trunk is still in motion. So you will fall forward
Also when the car starts suddenly you will fall back yard as feet go forward but due to inertia, the upper portion of trunk is still at rest
A body at rest tends to remain at rest. A body in uniform motion tends to be in that state unless acted up on by an external force. This is what is called inertia
