But It’s For the Polar Bears!!

“…When the first government-mandated fuel-economy standards went into effect in the 1970s, cars got smaller and lighter, and traffic fatalities increased. The National Research Council estimated that the CAFE standards contributed to about 2,000 additional deaths per year. If these tighter standards lead to a similar increase in traffic deaths, that could mean more Americans killed each year due to President Obama’s new CAFÉ standards than have been killed during the Iraq war.

I’m sure the answering argument will be “If you weren’t so FAT, you wouldn’t be propelled through the windshield so brutally!” and Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) will become:

Corpulent Americans Face Fried Fatty Feasting End (CAFFFFE)

You know he’ll do it.

    But shouldn’t people who are…larditudinally enhanced be safer with their built-in safety padding?

  2. No, because their enlarged bulk causes their craniums to crack the windshield with significantly more force than your average wispy vegan/skinny Skyler type in the same situation could produce. The ‘padding’ aspect is useless, as evinced in the ancient Japanese proverb concerning death by impact:

    What’s the LAST thing that goes through a bug’s mind when he hits your windshield?

    His ass.

    I have a protocol in place should she ever visit. It involves glaze and coffee and possibly a drive-thru window; I’m not at liberty to divulge more.
    Of course if she chooses a ranged attack I’m well and truly hosed.
