Unsafe at Any Speed

I've never said that SUVs should be outlawed. I've always hoped that SUVs would eventually become a guilty pleasure that only the most brazen asshole wouldn't be ashamed to drive. They waste our natural resources, funnel money to terrorists, and unnecessarily pollute our atmosphere contributing to global warming. We've known that for some time.

But now, a new campaign is starting to emphasize how horribly dangerous these monstrosities are. Oh - and in case you're wondering, it's paid for by Ford Motor Company as part of a settlement for a lawsuit brought by the governments of all fifty states. Yet another example of those greedy, ambulance-chasing trial lawyers stealing hard-earned money from the little guy (Ford) for no good reason (protecting the public interest).
