Default Woman, 60, jailed for running over cyclist she ‘thought he was a scarecrow’

A 60-year-old woman has been jailed for running over a man lying on the
road and driving off because she ‘thought he was a scarecrow’. Marian
Watt, of South Town Road, Alton, Hampshire, was sentenced to one year at
Winchester Crown Court after she was found guilty of causing serious
injury by dangerous driving. Laurence John, 55, was left with
‘life-changing injuries’ after he was hit by the 3,300kg (519st) Toyota
Land Cruiser on a narrow road outside the Yew Tree pub in Alresford on
25 November, last year.

SUVs are actually a reaction to the "metric engine" Ford Pinto. Obese Americans would bust the suspension system in the Pinto which became one sorry looking vehicle after that, even sorrier looking after a fat person emerged..

The solution: Create an oversize vehicle that would still look jaunty after the suspension was destroyed by obesity.

If Musk wants to fight AGW he might want to take another look at suspension systems. Or fast food.

Just don't mention my name.
