Hello all! My husband and I just returned from a 5 night stay in London, England. We saw so many Smart cars there. On the way to Heathrow Airport this morning from our hotel located just behind Buckingham Palace, I counted 14 Smart cars on the road!!!! So glad they've made it to the States. Also saw a car even smaller than a Smart. It's called a (and I'm not making this up) Gee Whiz -- it's electric and narrower than a Smart. Must be awful crowded when two people are riding!!

Aileen: I'll never drive there, either. We saw a lot of Smarts in Central London. Seems like a good choice for traffic and for parking. My husband loves to take cabs so that we can see as much scenery as possible. This was our second trip in three years. I would go back over and over if I had the means!!!! It's a great city. Have a great and safe trip back!! Becky

Becky- was in London in November and saw one smart parked Gloucester Road. Was surprised not more in Central london given the horrid traffic. Will be returning in April for opening of shakespeare season at the Globe and wonder if I will see more "on the road". Tempted to put mu Rosie in a suitcase and bring her along but hate that driving on the wrong side of the road thing. Have gone to London 3 times a year for the past 20 years and have never had the courage to drive there- the underground for me Aileen
