Posted by Orrin Judd at July 30, 2014 6:53 PMWhat's the safest car on the road? It's the one that can avoid getting into a crash all together.That's why General Motors' (GM) Chevy Volt won top marks for safety in small cars.The Volt was named "Top Safety Pick Plus" Wednesday by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, because besides earning an "acceptable" rating in an actual crash test, the hybrid electric vehicle also has an optional forward collision warning system. It was the only car out of the 12 models tested to have the crash prevention technology.
