People who suddenly explode into road-rage when they see a lone, petite driver chatting on his or her cellular while driving a full-sized SUV now have a song that expresses their inner Death Race 2000 contestant.
The song, 90 Pound Suburban Housewife Drivin' In Her S.U.V., has only been playing for a short time on the radio but is rapidly becoming a favorite among commuters. Written three years ago by Suzanne Sheridan and Rozanne Gates, the lyrics lampoon a common sight in the US:

Oh, she's a 90-pound suburban housewife,
Drivin' in her SUV.
Talkin' on her cell phone,
Oblivious to you and me.
Kids in the back seat,
Watchin' the little T.V.
She's a 90-pound suburban housewife,
Drivin' in her SUV.


Full lyrics can be found here. With people singing more in their cars than in the shower, we hope those SUV drivers, either between calls or when surrounded by cars blaring this song, get the message.

      It is interesting to see the vehicles used in reconstruction in the south (new orleans). Large trucks are a requirement, well almost. I did see a few people using what use to be work vehicles before the EPA cracked down on car gas mileage. Full size station wagons pulling trailers, with equipment in the back and on the roof. Years ago, most people would buy a car to haul families and even run there business. But now that the governement has forced (through gas mileage) auto manufacturers to stop production of the majority of large cars, or at least lighten and depower the large cars to the point that they can no longer pull heavy loads (Grand Marquis for example), people have been forced to buy large SUVs and trucks.

      I personally would not own a SUV if large station wagons were available new. It's ironic that the cars people were forced out of were lighter than the SUVs and trucks that have had to be used to replace them.

      I thought "Move Over" was funny, then I started reading the blogs. When everyone goes the speed limit nobody needs to get upset about lanes. The reason I drive left is due to the horrendous roads which need fixing. If anyone approaches, I MOVE OVER. And on SUVs, I wouldn't chastise you for driving your small car to the airport 3x a year for a trips to overseas destinations aboard a 757 (there's energy efficiency), any more than you should chastise me for driving my family in my SUV I chose for safety and capacity for 6 to go on a low-impact camping vacation!

      My daughter was killed by a drunk driver. She drove an Eclipse; the drunk driver drove a pickup. She died instantly; he walked away without a scratch. Sometimes it's a matter of life or death. The bigger car wins. What's left of our family will always drive the biggest thing out there. Not all of us are wasteful consumers.

      Joel, every time I see one of the said 90lb housewives in a 6000lb SUV it makes me want to put an RPG through the side. The only place where an vehicle like that belongs is in Iraq, so why not treat it that way?

      Does Senator John Kerry-Heinz still own 4 SUV's, live in 6 palatial estates, and jet around in the family Learjet?

      I wonder how many gallons of crude oil it takes to support his lifestyle.
