Nano impact

Mumbai cobbler books the Nano.. No, not the low end model, the middle model - LX
Now, nothing against cobblers as such but - I wonder if there will be a spate of accidents on our roads, given the kind of drivers who will be driving.... I do not claim any statistical data, but by simple observation, we already see that most accidents involve those BPO indica cabbies (apart from rickshaws and again, Tata trucks)
Tata isnt known for making safe cars (compare the braking of Indica with Hyundai in any auto mag).  Tata's idea of safety till date seems to be adding as much steel in the body as possible.  Nano does not even have that... 
Whats worse - getting hit by a rickshaw or a nano ??
