My SUV is bigger than yours

quintessent quintessent writes  |  more than 11 years ago

I heard something really odd on the news not too long ago. It was about the way U.S. auto makers were justifying building bigger and bigger vehicles. They cited a study that if a car weighs 100 pounds more than your car, you have a higher chance of fatality. So I guess the idea is to sell cars so big that everyone will have a car that's bigger than every other car on the road.

It sounds like something Dr. Seuss could write about.
