My "apparent" belief is borne of actual real life experience. And my "apparent" belief doesn't include thinking that 4x4 is the answer to everything. Beyond that, I had written more but I choose not to include it as I may be suspended. Please take a moment to re-evaluate your stereotyped thinking... Not everyone with an SUV is evil.
