2008 Smart Fortwo: Road Worry
September 09, 2008
On the freeway this morning, I couldn't resist taking this photo over my shoulder of the massive Ford truck that kept riding up on the Smart Fortwo's stubby, little bumper.
After a few miles of him playing cat to my mouse, the camera flash seemed to encourage him to back the heck off.
It wasn't until I uploaded the photo to my computer that I realized there were actually three large trucks abreast right behind me.
Driving the Smart can be fun, but it often comes with a feeling of inadequacy. Especially in heavy traffic.
