SUVs are hazardous for kids:
SUVs are the second-most popular way to transport children, behind minivans, yet are twice as deadly for children as minivans. SUVs are also the riskiest vehicles for children in rollover crashes.
SUV owners pay too much for gas:
The average 2002 SUV gets 7 mpg less than the average car. Because of this, SUV drivers paid $350 a year more for gas then if their SUVs were as efficient as cars, totaling a stunning $9 billion for all SUV drivers in 2002.
