In the latest crash data, it was shown that you are 11% more likely to be killed in an SUV than in a passenger car. So much for all those people who buy SUV's because they are safer. Last year you were only 7% more likely to die in an SUV. Turns out most fatalities occur in rollover accidents and guess what type of vehicles roll the most :? Maybe Darwin will slowly make it possible for people to feel safe driving Elises, Miata and Coopers in the US :D not to mention make the 15 mpg average fuel economy seem ridiculous.
