Are Big Cars/SUV's Safer?

It's not the car - it's paying attention.   This driver lost attention for just a few seconds.

From a safety point of view I'm better than average but I still have moments when I get distracted - it takes only a few seconds.   Put the phone down and drive! (I see this dozens of times a day), don't even think about texting (see this fairly often too), and I live in an rural area with light trafic.
