Crash test has revealed that smaller cars have a poor safety component

The results from a recent Australian crash test has revealed that smaller cars have a poor safety component and that small cars, particularly small Australian made cars, will cause more damage to the driver in an accident.

But didn’t we already know this? I remember when I first started driving and my dad would only let me drive in his (huge) station wagon. His reasoning was that if I was in an accident (which I never have been, ten years on) there would be more car around me to protect me and the car would crumple before I did.

While I’m not sure if this was just my dad’s way of not letting me drive his new car, disguised as parenting advice but it makes sense to me. The same way it makes sense that if you have an accident on a motorbike, as compared to in a car, you will be more beat up after the motorbike crash.

Does this logic work for you?
