[DML] Re: Front Ride Height Intentions

You miss the whole concept of safety regulations involving motor 
vehicles. Although there are inherent dangers in driving and riding 
in motor vehicles there are many things that can be done to reduce 
injuries, fatalities, and the chances of even having an accident. 
Many of these improvements are useful to all, even careful, safe 
drivers. Today it is recognized that things like seat belts, crumple 
zones, safety glass, just to name a few, can protect everyone when a 
human makes a mistake (which we all do). It is not a matter of "if 
you can handle it". Since the automakers were not taking the lead in 
introducing safety into cars the government stepped in and mandated 
it for everyone's benefit. Many of us are alive now because of these 
laws. It has the side benefit of keeping insurance costs down since 
the accident rate, fatality rate, and injury rate have been lowered. 
Today's cars are made to sacrifice themselves (absorb the energy) so 
that the occupants don't have to. The car may get totaled but the 
occupants can walk away. A recent accident on the L.I.E in NY 
demonstrates how a car can be totaly unrecognizable after an 
accident yet the driver survived with minor injuries. A tractor-
trailer went out-of-control and just swept the poor guy in an Audi 
into the divider and squished him and a schoolbus against the 
divider. It was all caught on video by the school bus camera. The 
Audi looked like it went through a shredder!
