If everyone drove golf carts, then arguments about size and safety wouldn't exist.

And no matter how big an SUV you have, when you get hit by a big rig whose driver is nodding off, you lose. Period.
Not all of us can drive a golf cart, we have trailers to pull, mountains to traverse, materials to haul. My 84 Diesel Suburban 4x4 was a GREAT truck, it had pulling power ( not very fast uphill), it would go anywhere I needed, I could sleep in the back out of the weather, it got 20+ mpg, it could carry plywood, and 20' material on the roof.
