OK, I'm all for people getting good fuel economy and all that stuff. I get it. But I have a request. If you own one of these so called "smart" cars, stay the hell off of the interstates or freeways. It's no place for a friggin' roller skate to be. Some, save the sea monkey, Lisa Loeb looking, chick was barely getting up to 60 mph on the Snyder Freeway this afternoon. It's been a long week and I was ready to get home. The left lane is for people who want to pass others or go at a higher rate of speed. How many people in realize that the reason it's called a "fast lane" is because of speed? So, needless to say, I had to cruise behind this idiot for about 5 miles. She wasn't getting out of the way. Probably had no idea she was holding up traffic as she had her Anni De Franco, man hating bullshit cranked up.
It's not right for some dumb ass to hold up traffic for 1/2 a mile back because they don't have any road etiquette. Eventually, I won't have to worry about that car, because a trucker isn't going to see her and they'll be able to bury her in a match box, after they scrape her carcas off the road with a spoon. It's just dangerous for a car my 5 year old could handle to be on the road. Even Edmunds.com says it shouldn't be used on the highway.
See, this is what I'm reduced to these days. Writing a blog about someone dragging ass in front of me, when I am trying to get home.
I'd say that if you look like this;
you probably love the idea of owning a smart car.
