I think, the safety felt in SUV's is not from other drivers as much as road conditions. Two of my co-workers drive RAV4's. Both drive 30-40 miles to work on rural highways where there can be lots of snow in the winter. Kendall's in Maine & probably sees the same. Even just as a passenger, I sure do like the way you can see so much more when up higher that way. With the rollover problem from the higher center of gravity, I'm not sure they are safer, but if Ford comes up with a fuel efficient one a promised, I'd be tempted.
