Besides...

Maybe if more people were killed outright in auto accidents, our health insurance rates would be lower.

My niece was in a serious accident that shattered her hip, put her in the ICU for weeks and she will have a limp the rest of her life, driving a 1990's car (a Hyundai as it happens).

If she had just died like in the old days, the premiums wouldn't be going up for everyone insured through her company, correct?

Plus there is no guarantee she will go on to be a useful member of society anyway, so what was the point in trying to save her?

But then, I believe in true personal responsibility, which most people don't want to accept.

It's her own fault for getting in the accident in the first place.

I was just pointing out the fact that driving an older car with more steel does not make one any safer. It's all the other cars on the road that are designed to absorb the energy of a collision that are making you safe. By driving an older car you are just electing to hand over responsibility for your personal safety to whoever you happen to get into a collision with.

You can't possibly say older cars are safer it's a stupid argument that I have withe people all to often.

Accident avoidance is much more critical that accident survival.

If you can avoid an accident you will always survive unscathed right?

So if my car can go 60-0 40 before yours that makes my car incredibly safer.

If the suspension and steering system is much more responsive I can swerve to avoid it better right?

If my ABS kicks in to keep me from going into a flat out skid I well have better control of my vehicle.

If the traction control keeps me from bucking the back end into a telephone pole I will be in better shape right? (then again I only see the "trac nanny" when I am driving like an idiot.


So you may be surrounded in a throne of steel, but have you priced what good steel reworking costs these days? I know a guy who does a ton of it, and its much more expensive than bolting on a new part.
