Time to Ban SUVís
« on: November 25, 2021, 09:04:22 AM »
Itís time to have a serious discussion about banning SUVs or at least limiting their use to highly trained drivers for track use only.

SUVís are pedestrian killing machines:
ďPedestrians are two to three times ďmore likely to suffer a fatality when struck by an SUV or pickup than when struck by a passenger car.Ē  https://www.codot.gov/safety/traffic-safety-pulse/2019/march-2019/death-on-foot-americas-love-of-suvs-is-killing-pedestrians

Further:

While we can also ban pickups and minivans, those are both safer than SUVs, we should at least take the first step and implement common sense car controls.

White supremacists choose SUVís as their preferred killing machine:

SUVís, especially when used on public streets, cause mass-murder massacres:

Last I checked, driving a car is not a protected US right, so banning SUV killing machines is a common sense measure we should all agree upon.

That's why SUVs should be banned and arms should not.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Can we fix the headlights not pointing downward enough on SUVs and blinding drivers (going in both directions)?

Simple. No.
We should implement the death penalty.

We could now, with the new bill that was passed a archaic law was change to allow adaptive headlights.
I'm not who you think I am.

OP is serious that we should consider safety. How far that goes is a good question. Cars are also much more efficient than SUVs.

Well if it is safety then how about cars compared to motorcycles. What are the stats on them? Might need to ban cars?

Or maybe ban motorcycles where assisted suicide is forbidden.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Light trucks are defined as SUVs, pickups, and Minivans? There's no chance you can take all of these off the roads. Even if it was hypothetically legislated going forward that manufacturers can't make/sell these in the US (also unrealistic), the secondhand market would keep them going for decades. The industry would also introduce crossover-like alternatives (or potentially larger vehicles like vans) that will technically be legal but might not decrease pedestrian death rates, and might even increase them.

With 100k death rates over the same time period, I'm not sure a relatively modest decrease of 8,100 justifies such drastic measures. There are likely other factors at play that can be targeted, that would require much less adjustment and yield better results.

We get the most benefit from motorcycles. That is why ER personal refer to them as donor machines.  ;)

These days you can never assume a call to ban something is a joke even if it was meant as such because plenty of people will consider it a great idea.
