Compared to Europe, sure.
But my post was in response to Raithnor’s: “This says to me: 'I don’t give a shit about pedestrians… or bicycles… or smaller cars.”
I’m in no way defending trucks. There are plenty of valid reasons to hate them. But in the context of that statement, I don’t think that’s a major concern. Hate trucks because of their carbon emissions or because of their terrible gas mileage.
If I’m a pedestrian or a bicyclist, I’m much more worried about a SUV or a crossover hitting me than I am about a truck because there just aren’t that many trucks in densely populated areas comparatively.
Edited to add:
This is from 2016. The Ford F-150 may be the most popular automobile sold in America, but look at the states where it’s the most popular vehicle. They all have pretty low population density.
