Should we ban old environmentally harmful cars
That is why we should discuss SUVs instead of diesel
SUVs are sometimes more dangerous to other drivers than other vehicles. They are just as dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists - but so are other cars. Some vehicles that look absolutely harmless next to large SUVs, such as small city cars, can even be more dangerous for pedestrians.
How dangerous an SUV can be for other road users can be described in the following scenarios:
Accident between an SUV and a smaller vehicle
When an SUV and another car are involved in a personal injury accident, the non-SUV occupants usually end up worse off. This has to do with the fact that an SUV is often safer for its occupants.
In addition, the high tires and the sweeping front make the SUV more dangerous for the occupants of other cars. For example, if it hits the side of another vehicle, an SUV can quickly hit the chest and head of the occupants of the other vehicle. The passengers in the SUV, on the other hand, are usually better protected.
Accident between an SUV and a pedestrian
The accident with a pedestrian is often subject to more variables. It depends, among other things, on how tall and heavy the person is who is hit. The high front of an SUV is likely to hit many people at pelvic level and lower abdominal areas, which can lead to worse injuries to the pelvis, abdomen, and chest. When an SUV hits a child, injuries to the upper part of the body are more likely. The body weight decides whether and how far the person hit is thrown away from the car after the impact.
The database dealing with these security issues is Euro NCAP. If you compare the safety scales of SUVs with those of smaller city cars, it becomes clear that small cars with little crumple zone on the bonnet and little space between the bonnet and the windscreen frame are sometimes more dangerous for pedestrians than large vehicles.
A pedestrian would not be bounced back by the sheet metal, but would hit the hard engine. In addition: the bonnet is very short, the way to the windshield is not far. The outer frame, which is extra hard to protect the occupants in the event of a rollover, is particularly dangerous. SUVs offer this risk less often, at least in a frontal collision, because the bonnets are long and high.
In general, the faster a car is on the move, the more likely it is to pose a threat to others. Not only because the braking distances are getting longer and the speed would require shorter reaction times. Accidents at speeds of more than 50 kilometers per hour are almost always fatal for pedestrians. And even when cars are moving more slowly, fatal, life-threatening and serious injuries occur again and again.
