I received an email today that I found interetsting and thought I would share with everyone. A lot of you may have already seen the email but those who haven't might take something from this.

Buy a Smart Car for Great Gas Mileage - Save Money and the Environment
Below is a photo of an accident near New Orleans involving two trucks and a "Smart Car".
I think I'll pass on saving gas; I'd rather save my Ass!

I am definitely for smarter cars, better gas mileage and helping the environmet but I also think we need to keep safety in mind. I've read where some of these smaller smart cars have recieved high crash rating scores but after seeing this I just can't see how a car that small could come close to hodling up in a situation like this. It would be intereting to see how many times fatalities are a result of accindents involving this type of car.
