In a collision, a heavy vehicle, by virtue of its mass, will generally sustain a lower change in velocity when compared with a smaller/lighter vehicle. This means the forces of a collision experienced by passengers in heavier vehicles are likely to be lower than the forces experienced in lighter vehicles.
