When I lived in Germany those smart cars were all over the place. I even seen a smart car vending machine at a dealer. there good on fuel and light enough if you wanted to haul them around. I believe they weigh a little over a 1000 lbs. Which brings me to my next point. I would hate to get into an accident in one.
The IIHS did an offset crash test with a Smart Fortwo and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is 40% of one car's driver's side head on with 40% of another car's driver's side, and the Smart received a "Poor" rating due to the occupants heads slamming into the steering wheel.
Also, there was too much intrusion into the footwell of the Smart Fortwo. Dummy movement was not well controlled. The Smart Fortwo circled 540 degrees and landed approximately 45 feet (14 m) away from the initial crash.
This test showed the Smart Fortwo's incompatibility with cars that outweigh it.
I'll stick with a scooter. besides chicks dig a guy on a bike.
I hope that also includes scooters
