The First Smart Car Collision? [Pic]

Submitted by: fancylad 7 years ago

Is this what happens when Smart Cars get in crashes? I hope no one was in there.

Also (which I couldn`t fit into my previous comment), SUV:s are sometimes too primitive in their safety structure, meaning that maybe you`ll get lucky and not have the engine squashed up into the actual cabin, but then you`ll just be giljoutined by the steering wheel axle.

Besides, if you choose a bigger vehicle, simply because it feels safer, others might be intimidated to do the same thing, and you will have the same problem all over again, except the now-small car weighs over two tons.

Deary me... I have read your comment, and find no sign of sarcasm anywhere. Now that is just sad. A biggar vehicle IS more dangerous to the surrounding evironment, other motorists and pedestrians included.
First, imagine getting a blow to your legs (which is usually the height of the hood of the car) so powerful that it crushes all your bones in them. It`ll hurt like hell, you might even die.
Second, imagine that same blow, with the same force, but now, as a wall, reaching to you forehead. Crushes everything.

In the picture is further proof of this example, but with a vehicle.

So does a bigger car, say an SUV, impose a bigger threat to humanity than a smaller car. The funny part is that many of the bigger, "i.e. safer cars", don`t do nearly as well in crash tests as smaller ones. The reason: they are mostly built in the US, with wobbly and soft chassis that, when stressed, will succumb entirely.

I have some doubt this is a SMART car. Checkout the car wheel under the red truck! I can`t find any SMART car data that indicates they ever had a wheel of that design.

lol danthew strikes again with another witty comment full of intelligent goodness.

This is obviously a mid-sized car but the car is not exactly the point here.

I think the ambulance is a bit unnecessary since no one in the car could have survived and the guys in the trucks probably didn`t feel anything more than a slight bump.

I think that was actually a Grand Am. I think.

You see this as an excuse to buy a bigger vehicle, to exchange someone else`s security for your own?

That`s amazing. Mythbusters got something wrong?

That shows less scientific than an episode of McGuyver.

I think Smart Cars have a 5-star crash rating. Doesn`t mean they`re not obnoxious. You can sense the self-satisfaction from a mile away.

That`s just not right.

If it`s crushed, is it easier to return it for the recycling deposit?

How does owning a bigger and thereby safer vehicle threaten other people? Please explain, if you can.

There wouldn`t be an ambulance if no one was in the car. I never liked small clown automobiles anyway.

As an EMT, I gotta say:

PLEASE don`t whip out your camera phones to take pictures of dead bodies at the scene of the accident. I was on duty when a passenger jet went down on Guam 12 years ago almost to the day, and several hundred people died, but the scene was packed with just as many people with cameras taking pictures of people as they tried to disentangle themselves from the wreckage. 30 people survived impact, fewer the next few days. This includes a retard who wanted a closeup of the wreckage that blew up in his face. Do us all a favor and GTFO. We don`t have the manpower for your bullpoo when something goes down.

Bloody hell! That`s one hell of a crash! But it`s not a Smart car because:
1 - That`s not a `Smart` wheel.
2 - The "safety cell" (i.e. the silver or black bits and main structure) are there to prevent that.
3 - The plastic body panels (the coloured bits) wouldn`t bend like that.

It was probably a Chinese car. They`re about as safe as nuclear warfare. That or the following truck was going waaay faster than the other two vehicles.

Yeah Vhreio, it doesn`t bend that much when you crash into a concrete wall at an angle and the only momentum is from the car itself. I saw it on fifth gear too, but they didn`t smash the thing between two huge trucks now did they?

Start thinking for yourself man. Don`t just regurgitate what you saw on television.

It`s probably not a Smart car, they have a very strong steel chasis that doesn`t bend that much, even at a 70mph impact. I saw it on Fifth Gear.
