Sobering videos

I’ve seen a few of the Smart Fortwo cars around on the streets of Tampa. Cute little things, but just looking at them always makes me wonder what would happen to the driver & passenger in a crash. Even with tons of airbags, I can’t imaging the results would be pretty.

Same for Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris. Cute, inexpensive, but so very small.

Well, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently released videos of test crashes of all three vehicles against mid-sized cars from the same manufacturers.

If you’re at all squeamish, you shouldn’t watch. For everyone else, here’s the link: http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/Insurance/InsureYourCar/small-cars-get-poor-marks-in-crash-tests.aspx?slide-number=1

After watching these videos you’ll never catch me in one of those cars.
