Ridiculous. It seems your equating "safe" with "weight and size",
which isn't exactly scientific, but: My folks' big heavy full size van
is worth maybe a thousand bucks. I see old Suburbans, Broncos, big
pickups, etc, going for $500 - $5000 all the time. If anyone is
concerned about safety and thinks a big heavy rig is the answer, it is
within their reach in some form or another.

I drive my DeLorean 99% of the time, which is a very low vehicle. In
fact, yesterday I drove past a new Beetle and my passenger said, "Holy
crap. This car is even lower than that Beetle!"

So you'd think I would have the same problem, but I don't. For one,
there aren't THAT many SUVs on the road. Most people are still driving
cars. If I had to guess I'd say the ratio was maybe 10-20% SUV, at
least where I live. For two, when I am surrounded by SUVs, it still
doesn't change how I drive. Parking lots can be irritating, I'll grant
you, but what are you going to do about it? Just back up nice and slow
so other cars have a chance to see you.

I guess it just doesn't bother me.

Well, if being down there so low amongst all of the larger vehicles
bothers them that much, then yes.

No, he's telling you to make changes to accommodate yourself. You
don't like the fact that you can't see around the trucks, so you
should buy yourself a bigger vehicle if it bothers you so much. This
isn't making accommodations for anyone else, it's simply you
responding to your environment based on what makes you comfortable.

>> and again, while I may have the means to buy myself a
>> larger vehicle what about those that can't?

The price of gas notwithstanding, anyone who can afford a car can
afford an SUV, van, pickup, etc. If someone doesn't have $30k for a
new one, maybe they have $3k for a used one.

>> Titans ride nice and have lots of cute little neat things in them. My

I'm indifferent to seat heaters. I've got 'em in my Montero, and
they're nice for taking the chill off the leather on a cold morning,
but after that I turn them right back off. Sitting in an overly warm
seat makes me feel like I've peed my pants, and that's no fun.
