Cars With Most and Least Fatalities
Safety is a huge concern when it comes to cars - we all want vehicles that will protect us during an accident. Personally, my preference is to own a small vehicle, but as statistics show, smaller vehicles have much higher death rates during an accident, so I personally choose to drive a larger vehicle.
This week, Forbes compiled a list of cars from the 2014 model year that had the most and least passenger fatalities. As expected, larger vehicles had less fatalities, and the list of most fatalities was made up almost entirely of sub-compact vehicles.
If you're considering a sub-compact vehicle, this is something you need to take into account unfortunately.
