Insurance industry researchers are giving high marks for safety to the tiny Smart car. But they also are warning consumers about the generally higher risks of small vehicles.

Yeah, did the test include hitting it with a "soccer mom" Hummer?

i love how they say they are giving it high marks and then at the very end they say this:

In federal tests made public last month, the Smart fortwo got decent but unspectacular scores. In both federal and insurance institute tests, the driver's door came unlatched in side-impact crashes.
that seems pretty serious to me.

It's not an open road car for sure. Maybe after a several year trend of people buying cars instead of SUVs it might fit in better. It's strange to see one going down the road. It's amazing how small it looks even compared to what I consider small cars.

The door coming unlatched is a scary thought and from what I gathered in the article you better be wearing your seat belt.
