ARE SOME CARS SAFER THAN OTHERS IN A CAR ACCIDENT?
Yes, you stand a better chance in a large vehicle, truck or SUV in most accidents. While many small cars do have great safety features such as side air bags, and antilock brakes, your chances or surviving are much better when you are in a large vehicle. This is especially true if you are driving a compact car and are hit by someone driving a large vehicle where their bumper is about the height of your car window. Unfortunately with the cost of gasoline, and concerns about the environment, and the supply of oil remaining, more people are forced to drive compact and subcompact cars.
