Zoom Zoom Zoom away he goes in his brand new SUV. Why do people buy SUV’s? Is it because of the four wheel drive capabilities? Is it for the added interior room? Or is it because they are safer. Sorry to break it to you but more people die in SUV’s than standard cars. More people die in SUV’s because they have a higher center of gravity and they rollover easier. It is the rollover that kills most of them.
Some people who buy SUV’s think they are safer in the winter time because they have four wheel drive. Some of them become stupid. They will speed down the highway in winter at a higher rate of speed than the road conditions allow. Four wheel drives do have more traction but they forget that because of the icy and snowy road conditions that their stopping distance has greatly increased.
To all those people who drive SUV’s, please drive with care. The life you save may be your own.
