Safety Gap Grows Wider Between S.U.V.'s and Cars

DETROIT, Aug. 16 - The gap in safety between sport utility vehicles
and passenger cars last year was the widest yet recorded, according to
new federal traffic data.

People driving or riding in a sport utility vehicle in 2003 were
nearly 11 percent more likely to die in an accident than people in
cars, the figures show. The government began keeping detailed
statistics on the safety of vehicle categories in 1994.

(etc... see the second page though that says large SUVs are safer than
medium sized passenger cars or medium sized SUVs)
