[DML] Re: Front Ride Height Intentions



Besides the easily resolved Delorean suspension issues that are 
cause for concern, we know by now that the car is designed well 
enough that injuries sustained while operating a Delorean will most 
likely stem from situations unrelated to the inadequacies of 
design.   

As for making accomodations for "operator error," something we are 
all guilty of from time to time, we can all appreciate the 
safeguards.  Of course, despite such benefits, perfect drivers in 
the safest machines we know how to manufacture continue to die.    

I take issue with the assertion that safety advances have been 
keeping down insurance costs.  If you are paying less, then you are 
a lucky man:  tort product liability has increased a great deal, and 
we all pay that cost.  The net effect is that we are safer from 
these advances, (which is the most important thing!) but the benefit 
of paying less in terms of insurance payments is, I believe, as yet 
unrealized for most of us.  

In addition, I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest the 
following:  some people can't handle machines either through 
physical ability or inexperience, though I don't believe the 
Delorean is more likely to fall into this category than any other 
car.  "Not being able to handle it" fits within the rubric of good 
ol' "operator error," which the L.I.E. accident illustrates as well 
as anything.  Your own comment confirms this:  with all its 
technological design savy, it's still hard to believe a person can 
walk away from a shredded car.  Watching a situation like that, 
where there's no where to go just goes to show that perfect drivers 
in the safest machines we know how to manufacture will continue to 
die-- all because someone else was careless... or, put another 
way, "couldn't handle it."
