Report: The 7 Most Dangerous Cars on American Roads
Low scores in rollover and rear-impact in crash testing land these vehicles on the list of most treacherous rides.
As a race car driver i have learned many expierences with cars. The rule of thumb is be as defensive as possible, know your equipment and limitations. Use your mirrors as intended, they are not their for show. You can judge a persons action prior to them making a decision by watching the vehicles wheels and suspension movement. ie-a studder in the steering to the left or right prior to maybe using a turn signal is a clear indicator they are going to turn in that direction, everytime. Front end nose diving, front end lifting- get to know these terms and you will have a very safe drive.
p.s. get the "F" off the phone
Granted all vehicles have some safety fault factors, but the severest danger is a driver on a cell phone. My last two accidents , rearended by drivers on their cell phones, one of them talking on one phone and texting on another at the time of impact. Totaled my ride, and i'm still having medical problems resulting from the accidents. How aboutInsurance penalties and expensive fines for cell phone use when driving.
Question...Why do stupid people use smartphones?
hmm... expected to see the tiny Smart Car on this, how are those things safer than a Truck or SUV?
