On Black Friday I was at the mall looking for parking spot, I drove past 2 police officers waiting for a tow truck to tow a SUV that was parked illegally. Both officers were looking at my car, after I parked my car I walk past the officers. Out of curiosity, one of the police officer asked me "How fast have you driven in that car?". I gave him a funny expression, thinking how I can answer that "question". Then he realized why I gave him that look, them both of them laughed. He ensure me it just a curiosity question. I told him on my trip from L.A. to San Francisco I've step on it past the 90s. He told me once on the freeway, he's seen a Smart zigzag through traffic and it looks very dangerous. I told him this car feels safe, and suggested him to try out the car at a local dealer.

Also have something fun to share, I started a discussion on this topic.

I had a similar experience--see "Pulled Over" in my smart page blog!

I work at a police department in Records and I can hardly WAIT until the first time I drive my Smartfortwo to work. Already the people I work directly with want to have rides, and the lady who sits behind me (but on a different shift) is interested in getting one of her own, so I got her a pamphlet from my dealer. But I really want to hear what the officers say ;D
However, the way the motorcycles drive the highways around here makes the Smarts look positively 'granny' safe. Scares the heck out of me. I KNOW I'll be much better off with my little guy.
Happy Holidays to all - and safe shopping.
