Driving from Fredericksburg to D.C. this morning we encountered some seriously bad traffic. Perhaps it wasn't the worst we've ever tolerated (barely) but it was up in the top 10. Which gave me a chance to reflect on the various vehicles on the road around me. And the one car that I saw that I consider an absolute tragedy waiting to happen is the so-called Smart Car.
First of all, it's ugly - a box on roller skates.
Second, it's dangerous. There is no engine compartment to protect the drive and no back seat or trunk to protect the passenger compartment either.
Third, it is driven by hubris ridden, self-righteous twits who are enormously self-congratulatory about their ecologically sound purchase and quite willing to endanger their own lives and the lives of others to celebrate their stupid purchase!
Fourth, why would anyone sane drive a vehicle that costs $11,990 to $16,990
Drive a Smart Car? I don't think so.
