Research on the trends in use of heavy vehicles indicate that a significant difference between the . and other countries is the relatively high prevalence of pickup trucks and SUVs in the . A 2003 study by the . Transportation Research Board found that SUVs and pickup trucks are significantly less safe than passenger cars, that imported-brand vehicles tend to be safer than American-brand vehicles, and that the size and weight of a vehicle has a significantly smaller effect on safety than the quality of the vehicle's engineering.  The level of large commercial truck traffic has substantially increased since the 1960s, while highway capacity has not kept pace with the increase in large commercial truck traffic on . highways.   However, other factors exert significant influence; Canada has lower roadway death and injury rates despite a vehicle mix comparable to that of the .  Nevertheless, the widespread use of truck-based vehicles as passenger carriers is correlated with roadway deaths and injuries not only directly by dint of vehicular safety performance per se , but also indirectly through the relatively low fuel costs that facilitate the use of such vehicles in North America; motor vehicle fatalities decline as fuel prices increase.  
Starting in 2015 my grandfather passed (I lived with him for last 5 years of his life), I contracted h1n1, lost the first knuckle down on my middle finger of my left hand, broke my shoulder in a wreck, sank my best friends jet ski (we’re no longer friends), my mom lost function of both her kidneys and now im her primary care giver, was in hospital 30 days and have had a portion of my large colon removed, have a enlarged spleen thats going to be removed, find out next Wednesday if i have multiple sclerosis, and owe the hospital 87,000 dollars. Still got a better outlook than most. Motorcycles bring me joy. Hopefully they can for you too.
It’s like someone shrank it into a little Miata and then turned it into a dune buggy! This is Brian Ballinger and Chris Smiths’s build for the next Gambler 500. Before we get into how great this is, lets get one thing out of the way. This is my least favorite Corvette model. It’s the one Barbie drove. It’s the Corvette most likely to enjoy the latest Michael Bolton album with its owner. Yet Brian turned it into heavy metal. You see this pull up and you pray he’s not here to pick up your daughter. No way Barbie would drive this. This is awesome.
