I Survived

Was driving down the highway when a pickup truck tried turning left in front of me.  I did not have a chance to stop in time and hit the truck going about 60mph.  I have never been in a crash before and was astonished at how fast everything happens.  My seatbelt held me in and the airbag went off. The collision was huge. Fortunately, i was able to walk away from the crash with just one broken bone in my hand and minor bruising.  I feel very blessed and lucky to have just that.  Everything in my Focus did exactly what it was supposed to and i am here and well because of its safety features.  This experience has made me a Ford supporter for life.

Your Ideas
I would like to suggest changing the driver side of the vehicle from the left side of the vehicle to the right side of the vehicle. The reason that prompted this idea is that my nephew was recently involved in a head on collision.  By the grace of God he was driving a Ford Bronco and survived the collision.  The drunk driver that was driving on my nephew's side of the road was killed.  My nephew suffered numerous injuries though:  compound fracture of the left leg, crushed heels of both feet, fractured vertebrae. The airbag and seat belt saved him further injury or even death.  He has undergone several surgeries so far and still has more in his future.  According to my brother, his bills have almost totaled half a million dollars.  I believe had my nephew been driving from the right side of the Bronco, he would not have been so severely injured.  Also, the drunk driver may have survived.  I searched and did not see this idea as already submitted.  I know postal drivers drive from the right side of their vehicles, so why not the general public? I look forward to your response.  Thank you very much.
