    You know I had an Idea about this over a decade ago, what we need is a car designed like a turtle shell ,so that when the SUV or truck hits you they roll over your or they flip over. I would design it with the strongest glass and support cage, make a four cylinder that gets 50 miles a gallon much like the cars of the late 70%. Volkswagen has a diesel that got 50 miles a gallon, now a days they are advertizing cars that get 35 miles a gallon as good mileage. A reason a lot of people don't by a small fuel efficient car is they are worry about getting killed. I'd design a car that if an SUV or Big Truck hits you, your car rolls theirs. Turtle design extremely strong and good on gas. Get on it Detroit and please make me a millionaire for the idea. So many problems to solve, I have the solutions, but someone help solve the problem of getting paid fairly.
