Not only do I find this foolish (why expend energy to repair damage you could have just avoided?), but more importantly, it doesn’t circumvent the hurtling safety hazards that are SUVs. As I’ve said before, their presence on the road is dangerous to ALL drivers, including those inside SUVs. The remedy? Shoot everyone who drives one? Outlaw SUVs? Those are suggestions I get sarcastically when I bring the subject up. No. How about not giving people a tax break for driving an SUV.
If gas prices stay where they are for a while, maybe that will help as well.
