    Its worse than that. Mount your equipment in your trunk, and it will puncture the gas tank in a rear end collision. Keep stuff in the trunk, and it becomes a missile.

    The older full sized Chev caprices had plastic gas tanks that were pretty tough.
    The Crown Vics have metal ones that can rupture like crushed beer cans.

    Why Cops are dying in their Crown Vics??

    I just finished reviewing the IIHS crash tests for the 2006 Crown Vics. The video shows a side-impact w/o side air bags/curtains. (Apparently, this safety feature is not yet available for the CV)

    I have been puzzled for some time about why so many LEO's are killed in such a large vehicle, as seen on the ODMP web site. Now I think I get it. Watch the video and see if you agree. If someone can help me post the link, I'd appreciate it. (I'm somewhat 'challenged' in this area. )
