With picture, the 15mph sign replaced a 25mph sign. Reports have been made of people jamming on their brakes and driving less than 2mph. Instead of increasing safety, sign will most likely increase rear end collisions of drivers who misread the sign. Even better is that there is no legal 15mph speed limit in New Jersey, making speeding ticket unenforceable.

Crash Testing: MINI Cooper vs Ford F150
Compares offset frontal crash testing of the Ford F150 (previous model year) and the Mini Cooper. From the pictures its clear to see that the Mini's occupany compartment is in significantly better condition than the Ford F150's.
Looking at some stats, the five worst vehicles in terms of death rates:
Toyota Tacoma 171
Chevrolet Cavalier 186
Dodge Neon 199
Pontiac Sunfire 202
Ford F-Series 238
and the five best:
Toyota Avalon 60
Chrysler Town & Country 67
Toyota Camry 70
Volkswagen Jetta 70
Ford Windstar 72
Of course this doesn't take into account how people drive, it could be that F150 drivers are worse than your average driver and on top of its safety issues it ends up on the bottom of the list. As an example if you look at rollover rates, its not vehicles with high centers of gravity that have high rollover rates (SUV's etc.) but sports cars (Corvettes etc.) because people who drive Corvettes drive them faster and so are more likely to flip the car even though they have very low centers of mass.
