Sorry, those are gross numbers. Unless you factor in the growth in the
SUV driving population, they are meaningless statistics. What is
important is to calculate the risk of death or injury for any given
driver of a car vs an SUV. THOSE statistics show that SUV drivers and
passengers are safer than those in cars.
