Wrong. A driver's unwise misestimation of the center of gravity and G
tolerance of a vehicle in cornering, due to too many years driving low
slung cars with different feel characteristics, is not the fault of the
vehicle. Your assertion is as bad as claiming that guns kill people by
jumping up and shooting them all by their selves.

I am not responsible for YOUR choice of a short vehicle, any more than
a train engineer is responsible for you being parked on the railroad
tracks as he hits you.

Stop copping out and take responsibility for your own choices and actions.
