The disease is spreading, Europeans are starting to want crossovers as well.
Both my brothers have crossovers in Brazil, one of their wives also. The segment didn't even exist a decade ago.

Maybe restrictive licensing based on gender could change things
Or license endorsements based on ground clearance. Seriously.

In Brazil you actually need the wheel travel, the roads are so bad. And I'm talking about the paved ones.

Unfortunately, the locals think they also need it for the Bravern/Bellevue Square valet parking areas.
I swear it isolates the driver from seeing pedestrians at crosswalks or driveways. But, I digress...

"Toyota said it has reached a settlement agreement with the Attorneys General of 29 states and American Samoa, one U.S. territory.
"This settlement means Toyota has nearly closed the book on this ugly chapter of its history and the settlement isn't terribly painful for the automaker," said Michelle Krebs, Edmunds senior analyst. "The $29 million isn't a huge amount for the company, which admits no guilt or wrongdoing as part of the agreement. Yet the settlement allows Toyota to move forward at a time when it is introducing a tremendous number of new models."

I saw a report that said if your eyes are farther from the ground you tend to underestimate your speed, so there's some science to that.
