Summary According to the contest questionnaire, "SUVs have taken over America's roads. Ad campaigns promote the vehicles as safer and "greener" than ordinary cars and easier to handle in bad weather. However, in actuality, the gas-guzzling SUVs poorly protect occupants during crashes and inflict horrific damage to other cars." PublicAffairsreports on the safety and the environmental record of SUVs--including the Ford-Firestone rollover controversy.
