This is what we discussed in private.  Why do you feel
the need to attack ME personally?  This IS a valid
argument, and if you disagree with it your welcome to
say so.  No need to say my argument is weak, or

Yes, there are lots of OTHER obstacles on the road.
Why do we need more?

How is this a danger to other cars?

But, it is likely that the H2 and the Honda are
traveling at the same speed..  Therefore, the H2 is a
bigger danger.

Right, this is the why the truck is "selfish".  The
whole safety argument is based on the SUV owner
wanting to have a bigger vehicle than the other guy so
they are safer, so they have better visibility, so
they don't even feel the Honda smash in to them.
