Answer:

SMART cars have been around for many years in Europe. I've lived in big cities for the last several years, and there isn't a better car for a big city with limited parking spots... Only issue is I wouldn't want to do a long hwy trip in this car given its size....

Answer:

I love the idea of parking perpendicular to the curb! Although I wonder if it's legal?

Yes. Cute but not terribly practical for long trips.

Answer:

I saw one just recently in San Antonio! It was soso cute! I was frankly concerned that a strong WIND might carry it away :) Does anyone know if they are safe?

Answer:

I saw one parked on the street the other day and shrieked with delight...the same way I shriek when I see a cute puppy. I want a smart car so bad. They are so cute and a very good option for anyone living in a city area. I always worried though that a strong, resourceful group of young men could decide one day to lift that thing up and move it somewhere and I'd never see it again. But yes, I want one.
