That makes sense. You have to be an idiot to buy a Hummer in the first place, so idiots are simply poor drivers with no regard.

Great! Take all those suburban male macho weenies, paint their toy-tank tan, install a machinegun, and send them to Iraq. What a bunch of castrated fools!

You dumb ecomentalist. Stop being an envious loser. Keep driving your Prius (which does more environmental damage than most SUVs ie;batteries) and believing you are saving the environment. Don't u feel stupid when u fill up gas now?

Well what about the Hummer the Suffolk cops use to catch 'em? I've seen it/them in action myself several times on the LIE/495. They are using a dark olive color Hummer to patrol for the speeders and HOV lane violaters. Don't know how many other Hummers they catch.

Two things determine the kind of car we buy. The first is money and the second is our personality. That alone explains the whole Hummer thing. Most of the people that I see and know with Hummers tend to be the Arrogant sterotypical LI'er that you hear off: "I'm the best, I'm the biggest". Really not hard to figure out.

How is it lost on the writers', that the biggest reason for that loss history is that many Hummer owners, and probably the biggest source of claims come from the wrap artists and wanna be's that irrespective of what they drive - see the other cars on the list are just awful drivers.
I'd bet Chevy Impala's and minivan's of any type aren't on that list.

I'd be willing to bet that most gas/electric hybrids on the road today still have their original batteries and when they do wear out, I would also be willing to bet the batteries will be recycled. Do you really think they'll be tossed in a landfill or the side of the road?

Calm down everyone, will you? The population of hummers in my area is very high. I have been abused by vehicles of all types, and never, do I recall being bullied on the roads by a hummer. Hummer owners are fellow Americans with the wherewithal and common sense to own a very crashworthy and capable vechicle. Stop the silly witch hunt for hummer owners, will you?

They get pulled over more because the
officers who stop them are jealous that they can not afford one. It's
as simple as that.

Every Hummer should have a communications specialist aboard.

That being said, file this story under: "I can't believe they needed a study to find THAT out."
