Mah Volvo is on the list. Woot!

I'm surprised they only gave it 3 stars for damage to others...From personal experience I can say that the bumpers can cause a lot of damage, without any visible damage to them.

Yes, but you can't buy a safe driver with your new license :p
True, but most people just buy a "safe" car (around here its usually SUVs) and assume that they are invincible; yet Europeans, for example, seem to do fine with small cars. We need a dramatic reform of drivers' ed and the licensing process to make better/safer drivers. But now I'm way off topic. I won't let the door hit me on the way out of this thread :lol:

Who cares about damage to others anyway?

Yay! I'm on the list.

Also, as LeVel mentioned, being a safe driver is important too, but it's impossible to predict what someone else might do behind the wheel and that's why this list is important.

that's very true. Same reason I don't ride a motorcycle - I can probably stay upright on it but you never know what the idiot next to you in traffic in the Suburban is going to do.
