Yeah, this is also the exact reason why I drive a large SUV (though I wish I could afford one that was a hybrid or alt fuels). I am not worried about my driving but rather the other idiots on the road running into me. I want to always be in the larger vehicle just in case!
Exact reason i drive a toyota land cruiser, i figure id rather have the guilt of someone i don't know dying in an accident with me than myself or family dying. IMO bigger is better on the road.
my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls
