Sigh.


Doesn't it bother you in the slightest, that the vehicle you choose, puts others at a higher risk?

It is only a risk if I am a bad driver.

Any reason you want me to be at a higher risk? Should I not have the choice to be safer as I drive?

Why can't you answer the question, literally answer it? I've posed it in 3 different ways, nbc.

Good drivers have accidents. Everyone has accidents. I am sure you put yourself in a safer category because of the things you outlined in another post but it doesn't mean that you are immune from accidents and the people you might one day be involved in an accident with, are NOT at a higher risk of severe injury because of your 4WD.

Now. Do you have any qualms about your car being a greater danger in ANY accident, regardless of who is at fault? Yes or no?

I've answer your question because I don't believe my car is a greater danger.

Thank you.

That is a shame. But each to their own.

Medically speaking, I find the debate to be somewhat grotesque.

From a purely professional POV, you are not necessarily better off with a shattered hip bone due to impact with a Camry than you are with a punctured lung due to impact with a Pathfinder. So to me, at least from the POV that I do know something about, the discussion is really neither here nor there.

Nonetheless there is a real and undeniable issue when it comes to our habits and excesses, particularly as relating to oil and geopolitics that need to be addressed far better than they have been thus far.

Thank you, NBC, you have reminded me why I do not like FYM.

FYM is like KFC. Eat it once a year, vomit, and recall why it was avoided.

a wasteful way of life that enables dependency on foreign oil certainly does have dramatic consequences.
