If i drive with really flat sluggish tires are my chances of dying in a car crash very small?

I heard you grip the road better, (and people honk at you less)

    Tyres/tires provide optimum grip in normal situations when inflated to the correct pressure. Under inflated tyres adversely affect the handling and the braking efficiency of a vehicle.  An additional danger of under-inflated tyres is that excess sidewall flexing and the scuffing of sidewalls on the road surface can cause catastrophic tyre failure. Under-inflated tyres increase your risks when driving.
