    So the real difference between rate of injury in properly restrained children in car vs. SUV is 1% (2% in cars, 3% in SUV). That seems statistically insignificant to me, especially given the myriad variables that this \”study\” can\’t possibly control for or even have data on (like driver error, which is a significant contributing factor to almost any rollover, SUV or otherwise).

    From what I learned in physics, there is safety in mass, and all other things being equal, the big guy always wins.

    I wonder how much StateFarm\’s policy holders paid for this one?
