While this is NOT the forum for who is right or wrong in the type of vehicle they choose, I must reply. Why is it OK to have the manufacturers, etc. build cars that are nothing more than a coffin on wheels? Without naming brands, there is a foreign car M-Z-A, M-A-A car that is barely visible while driving a regular sized car, what about the large trucks on the highways that don't even see this vehicle. Why is it OK to drive sub-compacts that look like the size of the cars in the circus and probably have similar safety measures?
We are all entitled to our choices.
Pray for those who were killed & injured and their respective families.
If everyone drove small, fuel-efficient cars there wouldn't be the huge mismatch in vehicle sizes that there is today with so many SUV's on the road. What we need is for gas to go to $5.00 a gallon or more, then maybe people wil get smart and junk these dangerous, gas-guzzling hulks.

As for the idiot who killed this woman,I'll bet he was fooling around with his cellphone while driving and didn't even see that the traffic in front of him was stopped. I pray that these people recover and find the best litigators that they can get.

Doesn't "appear" to be drugs/alcohol.Guess he's just plain crazy then. Either way, THIS time he needs to be locked away and have the key flushed.

They will tell you 5% or 6% however trust me when you get your bill the increase will be much higher.Leave this place before the taxes and cost of living become so high every hose on your block become a rental and you can not pull the equity out of your home.
If you truly feel this way, and everything you have said about Long Island you hold true, why are YOU still here?

this driver needs to be put in jail. period. sure, accidents happen. however, with a record of previous poor judgements and accidents, this is a patterned reckless driver who has no care for human life. my sympathy to the son and father and entire family on their loss.

That's why I will not drive a "green" car or any other small coffin on wheels. Until the traffic laws are enforced it's my safety first. My sister was rear ended in her SUV by a truck and walked away. What good is saving the planet if your'e not around to enjoy it!! People should start respecting each other (on the roads) first.

No, if everyone obeyed the traffic laws horrific things like this wouldn't happen. Drivers of small cars drive just as bad as everyone else. So I guess we should all drive small cars so we can ignore the traffic laws?

i was on my way home from a Party at the metropolitan from a dj party. i drove on that road around 5:30 and i saw what happened. At first it looked like a 5 car fender bender. But when i drove a little further up.. i saw this small card that was crushed like a can.and a rover behind it and i knew that this guy was going at speeds that were over the limit and i said. what a A_hole. very upsetting . They should send this guy to jail for a very long time and revoke his drivers license for life and give him a reminder picture on what he did.

How does a man get his license suspended 6 times and is still able to drive. This system does not work. Glen Cove is a small community. The police should have been more alert and watching this man. Why is it that it always takes a death to finally do something. That poor child. On his happiest day and before Mother's Day, he had to suffer such tragedy because of some idiot.

you left out the biggest offenders, the young guys recklessly driving their Acuras that sound like buzzing bees cause they think they have fast, cool cars. Put them next to a Chevy Chevelle and they would be embarrassed!

Toni was my friend. She was a great wife, a very proud mom and a wonderful friend. Her life's work was helping hearing impaired kids. In her spare time she sang with a group that raised money for non-profits like the soup kitchen and homeless shelter. I will miss most her sense of humor and great chuckle that always made me smile. She was a classy person. I am praying for Sjef's recovery and for strength for Pieter to get through this terrible time.

Range Rover driver, license suspended SIX times in the last 4 years? They are ticketing the shit out of people for misc violations yet this scumbag is driving around freely. Shows that money can get you off anything. Vehicular manslaughter for this bastard. 43 years old and still driving around like a maniac.

The driver should be put in jail and throw away the key. Sounds like a complete arrogant idiot. Selfish fool. What comes around goes around.

Most SUV's are driven by A**HOLES trying to prove that they can be bigger, meaner and faster than anyone else on the road. The bigger the SUV the smaller the man is where it counts!! This is how he makes up for it. On the flip side the smaller the female, the Bigger the S***Mobile SUV she's driving. All of 85lbs. on the cell phone with that crazed look: I'm in my Tank, no one can touch me!! Want to be a Range Rover?, Rove all the Ranges you want, preferably on another continent and fast!!! I hope gas goes to $5.00 per gallon and you're all stuck with your troop carriers. Just save enough gas to drive to the poor house!!! CHUMPS
