Not much I hate more than an oversized SUV and this tweet and the paper it links to should get a good conversation going about why.
Heavier cars are safer for their drivers, but far deadlier for everyone else.
This paper find that for every 1,000 pounds a car weighs over a Toyota Corolla, the chance of killing another person goes up by 46%! Heavier vehicles lead to 28k more US deaths. https://t.co/PdvC6OEPWz pic.twitter.com/SPut5631cK
