Re: Do Car Makers Carry Entire Responsibility?
I agree... I feel bad for the occupants as well but when I read that the majority of the occupants in the van were NOT wearing seatbelts well that just annoyed me. It is just common sense to belt up is it not?
Why does ANY car rollover? I can drive at a million miles an hour and hook the steering wheel and be guaranteed to put me into trouble but I won't blame the manufacturer of the car. Imagine if I try that in a car with a high centre of gravity like a F-Series truck?
As for dodging stray animals.. I already expressed my views on this in another thread but put it this way... it's either the animals life or mine. I know which one I'd choose.
IMO It is all about driver training, which is obviously lacking in all parts of the world and not because manufacturers build cars that are prone to rolling over.
For Ford to cover their arses they would need to install as standard... Rollcages... ABS... Traction Control.. Safety Harnesses... in ALL cars but in the end.. if you can't drive, NOTHING will save you!
