Out of curiousity, did the smart go sideways (like your car is facing W on a N bound road) when you went in the left lane? Or was it just a swerve in the left lane (still facing N on N bound)?I had just cleared the left lane, so I knew that I had plenty of space there. I stomped on the brakes, and at the same time I cranked the wheel very, very rapidly to the left!! All I can say is..... OH MY GOD!!! This car did everything EXACTLY RIGHT!!!
I will say that, from personal experience, going sideways (but staying in the lane) on the highway at 55 mph is definitely a scary ride.
