What is it about the design of limousines makes them more dangerous than regular passenger vehicles?

The stretch limousines that we see on our roads are not produced by any of the major car manufacturers. Instead, stretch limousines are regular vehicles that are extended by cutting the vehicle in half and then inserting a longer middle section. To do this, it is not uncommon for the company making the limousine to remove safety features that regular vehicles are required to have, including easily accessible exits, reinforced rollover bars, and side-impact airbags. There are no federal safety regulations in place for a vehicle modified into a limousine.
