We’re Really in Trouble

The National Highway Safety Administration says teenagers can’t really handle SUVs. Not that we ever see teenagers driving SUVs around here.

  1. I would challenge that study only because many adult drivers also demonstrate similar driving skills with SUVs. And while teens may lack “vehicular response” experience, no other vehicle types would offer safer transportation: lower center-of-gravity cars encourage speeding via a false sense of security (and perform worse in crashes against SUVs).
    Why should licensed drivers be allowed to drive without accident avoidance skills and experience with how a vehicle handles and responds in those conditions? What we all need is mandatory driving school at Skip Barber or similar facility to earn a driver’s license. Why aren’t the auto insurance companies underwriting such an initiative?!
