SUV safety study results

Postby stomperrob » Sun Apr 15, 2007 5:10 pm

The Crash Research Dept of the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently divulged they had covertly funded a project with the U.S. auto makers for the past five years, whereby the automakers were installing blackbox voice recorders in four-wheel drive pickup trucks and SUV's in an effort to determine, in fatal accidents, the circumstances in the last 15 seconds before the crash.
They were surprised that in the vast majority of states, the recorded last words of drivers in 61.2% of fatal crashes were: "Oh, Sh*t!".
However in Texas, Louisiana, Mississipi, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky and South Carolina, the results were markedly different.
In these areas, 89.3% of the driver's final words were: "Hold my beer, I'm gonna try somethin'!".
