Bullshit.



You're not judging a dude that drives this?

Face it. If someone was driving that, almost everyone ISH would assume, "dumbass racist redneck probably voted for bush hates gays."

I myself don't like tiny cars because I'm somewhat tall at 6'1", I need my room, and because if you wreck you die. Who cares about your awesome gas mileage when a collision will end you? That's just my perspective though.


Are there any stats out there that show an increase in highway fatalities among small cars vs say SUVs?

Fig. 9. Percentage of vehicle-occupant deaths that occurred in identified vehicle types: 19001999.


http://www.iihs.org/Renderers/ShowMe...5-975d2ec5c5fe

check out this site:

http://www.iihs.org/research/fatalit...es&year=200 8



2008 auto deaths

car: 15,631
pickup: 5,025
SUV: 4,326

and that is just "car"....not "tiny car"

now it could be there are just that many more cars out there than SUVs...but have you ever see collision test between the two?...the SUV always wins, and it isn't even close

the driver of the SUV is always above the collision...the person in the car is flattened

cars are many times a reflection of personality...it's okay to stereotype someone by their car IMO...it's not like race/ethnicity

if I see a 64 impala bouncing down the street, I know the type of person in it

if a see a camo Hummer...or a pink Beetle...etc etc

A vehicle a person drives can be very telling about their personality. And a lot of times, people WANT it to be.

I drive pickups, and I will always. I like them, they are useful to me, and at 6'3", I won't cram myself into a small car. Even a 'normal' sized car like an Accord or something feels cramped to me.

Those are exceptions though, there aren't many pink Beetles out there on the streets
But most of the time you can't really tell, of course there are target groups for every car, a Minivan is mostly associated with suburban moms or sporty japanese cars are likely driven by younger men who like the F&F series and so on.

Meh, I think if you have a small car you just play it off as being economical and whatnot. If you have a huge truck, you just say that you don't care about being economical. No matter what, haters gonna hate.
