Anytime we see one of these on the road, I usually turn to my wife and say, "Oh, look! Another cute death trap!" One of the reasons we drive a Ford Expedition is that I understand physics.

Dutch kids with a few beers are known to pick them up and heave them into the canals. So far, without drivers in them.

She's lucky. That POS looked like it was sideswiped. Otherwise, they would have used a suction hose to free her.

I had a vision of a bunch of guys in a SUV stopping at a traffic light, getting out, picking a smart car up, turning it 180°, and leaving.
