The vehicles of the game are very unsafe in cases of accidents. The mortality rate is always 100 per cent.

This is very alarming, and I would feel very uncomfortable sitting in a train or bus knowing that every single passenger will die in case of any kind of collision. Same goes for aircraft.
This task depends upon

This isn't very compelling in terms of gameplay. However as a cosmetic change it does sound good. I'm also sure it would be trivial to add.

Vehicles never have to stop for refueling, so it's reasonable to assume that their fuel source is incredibly dense. In a crash, it would be reasonable to think that some or all of that energy would be released. It's the hydrogen car problem: fireballs in fender-benders.

Think of every car, train, boat and plane as a nuclear bomb strapped to a small engine. It makes those giant plumes of fire whenever there's a crash seem much more reasonable. :)

Well, you could always assume the vehicles get refuelled when they're serviced.. ;)
