Seriously, though, your logic fails. Safety should not dictate the size of the vehicle you choose. Choose the vehicle that meets your needs and then choose safety within that category.

As for being scary..
Spoken like someone who owns a small car.

You're an engineer, right? It's simple physics. Bigger cars are usually safer than small cars. How well do you think a 2400 lb car is going to do in a collision with a much larger object?
