Statistics don't mean anything if you don't have common sense.
It's pretty damn obvious, unless you're blind and retarded, that if you got into an accident in that car you could get seriously injured or killed fairly easy.
I'd say the false sense of security people tend to exhibit driving large trucks & SUV's is every bit as dangerous as any actual advantage they may have in terms of size and weight.
The car is designed to cater to those driving in congested inner-city urban environments, where its possible
disadvantages of size & weight are not such a huge factor in real life anyway. Scooters, bikes...even being a pedestrian obviously poses a greater risk of injury in the case of a collision, but that hardly makes you a "retard" for doing it.
Not that I'm judging, but guess where Americans addicted to their giant-assed vehicles fall on my retard scale?
