Several years ago, we asked the question, are SUVs evil? We’re used to these huge vehicles in the US, and the high price of gas means we’re seeing fewer of them, but they’re fairly new in the UK. Doctors there say that the people who drive them are putting themselves, as well as other people, at risk.
SUV drivers take more risks, because they feel safer, surrounded by all the metal. While they ARE safer than a small car in a collision, they are much more dangerous when it comes to rollovers, the type of accident for which air bags offer no protection.
