Have you ever been stuck in traffic and then you pass by an accident with Police, Firefighters, EMT’s and others at the scene? That was most likely a fatal accident. There are more than 30,000 who died from a motor vehicle accident each year. That number is down and has been declining for years, but a change needs to occur.
Auto Transport Quote Services wants to share some great news. Newer model vehicles with high tech add-ons such as stability control are coming in with some extreme low numbers of deaths. Want to guess what type os vehicles are giving these low numbers? You guessed it, SUV’s. Vehicle models such as the Honda Odyssey, Lexus RX 350, Mercedes-Benz GL 4WD, Toyota Highlander, Volvo XC90 4WD, and Kia Sorento all had ZERO deaths registered, ZERO multi-vehicle crashes, ZERO single-vehicle crashes, and ZERO rollovers. Those are some excellent numbers for these auto makers to tout about. Other models such as the Ford Flex, Mazda CX-9, GMC Yukon, and Ford Expedition all recorded less than 5 in those categories listed above.
Transporters across the United States transport vehicles like those all the time. Now we can smile a little brighter when we deliver this type of vehicle to a family. Just knowing that they will be safer makes us happy.
On the flip side of the coin, the worst vehicles to buy (the highest amount of crashes) were the Kia Rio, Nissan Versa, Chevy Aveo, and Hyundai Accent. People may accredit the higher stats to the amount of younger drivers that drive these models, but the numbers are staggering how many deaths occur from these models.
As technology becomes better, the amount of zero-death vehicles will continue to rise. The newer technology will become more wide-spread and be in lower end models. With the possibility of auto-driving vehicles coming in to the near future, the number of zero-death vehicles could multiply greatly. Only time will tell, but it looks as if we are all taking a step in the right direction.
