Why I don't drive an "econo-box"

In fact, I drive one of the most dreaded things of all, if you follow environmental news and etc:  I drive an SUV.  What my late, beloved Dad always called a 'van'.

There is a very big reason I drive something like this that I never see when all the debates go back and forth on these big ol' "vans", and that's this:

I have general anxiety disorder.  Ergo, driving an SUV puts me at least even w/ the trucks and gives me a feeling of physical safety that corresponds to psychological safety and thus in driving such vehicles almost exclusively since 1995 (with a few exceptions, and those were always - umm - interesting!) makes driving at all but especially on highways, very doable!
