Donate Your Car and Buy a Safer One

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were more than 30,000 deaths resulting from motor vehicle crashes in 2010 and an additional 2.24 million people were injured. Vehicles are becoming much safer as with more vigorous safety standards and new technology such as airbags and shatter-proof glass. However, driving can still be very dangerous so it is better to be safe than sorry when selecting a new vehicle.

Once you donate your vehicle, consider purchasing one of these vehicles with a high safety rating this year. While these vehicles may be on the expensive side, the research and technology that went into making these cars so safe may be worth the extra cost.
