I was having an argument earlier today with family members who insist the older steel body cars are safer then the newer cars. I believe the newer cars design is better though you will not be able to drive your newer car after an accident the damage you receive to yourself would be less unlike a steel body car where you might be able to drive it away but you risk more damage to yourself. They also said to find the death ratio for each type of vehicle ( I could not find) and compare that. Anyways what does adisc think? Video of an older vehicle crash on a newer vehicle. Do you know of any studies that prove either side is wrong? Do you believe these studies and why?
