Incompatibility and Aggressivity

In crashes, SUVs and other light trucks inflict inordinate damage on other vehicles.

In fact, SUVs are nearly three times as likely as cars to cause a driver fatality in the other car in a two-vehicle collision.[1] 

Visit our page here for more information about incompatibility and aggressivity.

[1]See Bradsher, Keith High and Mighty 2002 p. 188. Statistic based on Hollowell, William T., and

Hampton C. Gabler, “The Aggresivity of Light Trucks and Vans in Traffic Crashes,” National Highway

Traffic Safety Administration 1998.

But that means we depend on the generosity of concerned citizens like you for the resources to fight on behalf of the public interest. If you would like to help us in our fight, click here.
