Tue, 02 Nov 2004 - Safety of SUVs

Steven talks about an interesting article about the safety of SUVs. It claims the primary problem with SUVs is that they give the driver the feeling of being safer, but are in fact less safe.

It also implies that four wheel drive in general for vehicles could actually be bad because it removes the feedback to the driver of the road conditions. With handling much better, people don't adjust their speed to road conditions, and they discover too late that four wheel drive does not help with braking.
