Scared Smart

Has everyone seen these cars? It's an electric car. The Smart Car

Does everyone suck in their breath every time they see a driver in their "can" of a car driving in one?

I must say, I worry about these people! I know their trying to save gas and their "carbon footprint" {don't get me started on that little conspiracy theory}, but these have poor crash test ratings!!

Yet, people buy them to "commute". Where I live, that ususally means driving with nutso drivers {can you say road rage?} all around you!!

Also, I don't know about you, but my utility bills...electric and gas...have gone up astronomically!

All I know is I'm scared for those drivers...I'm scared smart!

I think the same thing when I see those cars. Good for parking bad for crashing :) I finally got around to posting your award :)

Have a great Wednesday!

I have to agree with you! That pink little car is adorable but couldn't look less safe!

When we were in Rome several years ago, those were everywhere. I would drive one in Rome because the only other traffic you're sharing the skinny, cobbled roads with are mopeds and pedestrians. If you can't parallel park it, you and a friend can lift it up and slide it into a space.
Drive it here while sharing the road with SUVs? Why not just have someone shoot you in your driveway?
No thank you to the Smart Car.

The ONLY place I would drive one of those would be in town - my SMALL town. Anyone who drives those things on the highway is an idiot. I'm just saying.

I am an SUV lady with a big van and I am not fond of the little cars but, I do have to admit that pink one is mighty cute! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

I know, they are tiny! That's why I drive a honking gas guzzler to keep my kids safe - LOL!
