    When a car hits a steel guardrail, it sucks the car into it and usually makes the situation worse. Concrete walls, like the ones at Lapeer, tend to just deflect the car away .

    Concrete walls retain the car. Steel guardrails almost always make a crash worse by launching the car in the air and barrel rolling, or flipping end over end.

    Oops. Bad466, I didnt see your post until I commented. Sorry to repeat what you basically said.
