USA Today and The Detroit News both offer some interesting insights into the recent rollover statistics we covered earlier this week. Like we've said SUVs may be more likely to rollover than other vehicles but that doesn't mean they're not safer. I remember a few years back listening to a safety expert talking about what cars are best etc. And the interviewer asked him what his wife drove with the kids. He answered a Chevy Suburban because if it got into an accident he knew they'd be safer than the other car. Tough to hear but probably true. The good news is fatalities are down, mainly due to less drunk drivers and more seatbelt users. Both positives. But if you watched the news like I did last night the NBC anchor didn't lead in with that stat he talked about which SUVs are the most dangerous, which echoes The Detroit News' story.
