Re: Making my US Bumpers smaller
Do you really think bumpers are a safety measure in a real accident?
The body has crumple zones and the bumpers simply move as the body
crumples . . .
The shocks (one of Ralph Nader's gems - along with the 85mph speedo) were
later abandoned as the the 2.5 mph bumper law replaced the 5 mph
