Less than 1% of the reader traffic. I love how they HAD to get their 0.02 in there about how "questionable" smart safety apparently is. Hwat? It was a freak accident, it could've happened to any car...

Strange, that article is missing "Dodge Car" in the title.

Best wishes to those involved in that crash too.

If you turn the radio WAY UP, you CAN cover up the incessant racket from the damned seat belt beeper....:(
My 2008 keeps beeping at a faster rate for about a minute or so, then it stops.
When the car comes almost to a stop the beeping will begin all over again as the speed increases.
I believe the beeping is triggered by the same signal as the door locking mechanism.

As for this accident, I'm just remembering the many times the occupants' shoes remained in place and the occupants ended up somewhere else. That was extreme.
I firmly believe the woman was wearing her belt.
In addition women will wear belts more readily than some macho idiots would.
I knew several elderly men who put the belt across the body and never clicked it in. This was to keep the cops at bay.

I love to educate people on , why this little buggy is so safe.
Also am getting tired of people complaining of the tranny.
Hey, it always wants to be in a higher gear.
And the reason why is> Fuel economy <
The lower engine rpm , means less fuel used.
It wasnt designed to be a hot rod.
We r finding our Smart Car a lot of fun.
Im alot more comfortable in this, than the person on that spendy motorcycle.
Not to mention SAFETY.
Every time I let someone sit in it is , lol
An eye opener, for them.
My only complaint is.
Feeling like we r in a fish bowl.
Look out!
Tinted windows comming soon.
Lol

I have 5%. It's illegal, but I don't care. Maximum privacy and gives the car added depth! :D



Word of advice, 5% tints almost eliminate your ability to see while driving in reverse. :eek:
