Not so Smart Car


Below is a photo of a wreck in Jefferson Parish, LA between two trucks and a Smart Car.  Think I’ll pass on the Smart Car Sad

Re: Not so Smart Car

But some larger cars seem to do better in safety tests than others.
I'm not up to date - but didn't Saab and Volvo do better than many others - both Scaninavian but now owned by large firms -
Saab GM - are they being sold like "Opel" / Vauxhall
Volvo - Ford

I'm not entirely convinced by the bottom one.  There seems very little damage to the front lorry, and even if the car was as flimsy as someone is trying to indicate, is there even room for an engine block in there?
