I guess I overlooked their airbags both deployed in the picture. Actually the Accord has high safety #'*. It also has safety features that our cars do not. Plus the Accord can handle better than any of the Bonnevilles.

They were moving at a very high rate of speed...it'* plausible that in another car they may have survived, but not without serious consequences, I think...they probably would have survived this one had they been wearing their seatbelts. It mentioned they both died on impact...

I guess your right. If they were in a bigger car they wouldve survived & just died later. The crash test are done at speed up to 45mph & not over. This is a high speed crash not many cars would survive a crash like this and have the passengers survive. But poeople are just giving this so much heat because they were driving an import. If they were driving a Bonneville and the same thing wouldve happened nobody would be saying nothing about, other than that sucks.

I think I see your point...I know that I, for my part, would still have titled this thread "The price of racing stupidly..." if it were a Bonnie. If you notice, I mentioned for all of us here to keep in mind racing responsibly...And that, everyone, is the only point I was hoping to emphasize.

Love y'all, really, I do...

Well at least you do, & my fault if you thought I was coming after you TrueWildMan or anybody else for that point. But often when we post things that happened to imports everybody laughs, pokes fun, or says ignorant sh*t. In a case like this I really dont think there is any need to post Ignorant jokes or remarks. For those that do & find it amusing HERES TO YOU. I REALLY HOPE THAT ONE DAY IN YOUR LIVES THIS STRIKES HOME & I HOPE PEOPLE AS IGNORANT AS YOU MAKE FUN OF YOUR DEAD FAMILY OR FRIENDS. Then well see how funny it is.
