Forbes help you avoid the most dangerous vehicles on the road today.
Hoping to stay safe on the road? You might want to avoid certain cars. For example, the Nissan (nasdaq: NSANY – news – people ) 350Z has a death rate that’s about double that of the average sports car. But it’s not for the reasons you might think. In this case, says Russ Rader, communications director for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), an organization that represents the interests of the insurance industry, the 350Z is part of a group of vehicles that tends to be driven by younger, less experienced or riskier drivers, and stands out for having high death rates, through no particular fault of the car. – From Forbes
