"Smart" cars

I have recently been to Europe. There were many “Smart” cars there. They look as if they are very efficient in town. My problem is I would not like to drive it faster than 35 mph. Safety you know, the laws of physics, bigger hurts smaller. Some of you live in Europe. I saw very old towns, which the roads system was made for horses. The “Smart” car is much better than a horse. The “Smart” car should be very successful in most of the world. I live where the freeway is king.

yes, the Smart's are very popular, the ForTwo Coupe is a lot used as an advertising car, the ForTwo Cabrio is a great second fun car
and the Roadster & Roadster Coupe's are really cool looking cars, and now their is the new model the ForFour.
and trust me those cars are VERY safe and fun to drive
they all went thru the requiremented crash tests and all did well.
i even remember seeing a crash test of a smart against an Merc S, the Merc looked in a worse shape afterwards

I believe Smart has plans of coming to the US in a few years or so.
