The New York Times is reporting on a study that suggests that design changes to SUVs have made the drivers of cars safer. The auto industry was initially against these changes, but the changes appear to be helping those who are struck by SUVs. (The changes include lowering the SUV or putting hollow bars into the bumpers.)
Kudos to the car industry for making SUVs safer. That can only help all of us. As I previously reported, you are not necessarily safer in an SUV, despite people thinking that is the case. So while you may not be as safe as you think, you should feel a little more comfort knowing that you will not cause the type of damage you may have thought you would.
Of course, with SUVs being safer, when are they insurance companies going to lower rates for SUV drivers?
