      The article helps in that I really hate my partners, so I am going to buy them each a Honda Fit.

      If the government would make everyone drive these cars then all they would have to do is put rubber bumpers around the car and we’d all be safe again.

    And yet, owners of these mobile coffins praise how safe they feel while driving one.

    It boggles the mind.

    “Minicars help automakers meet consumer demand for more fuel efficient vehicles as well as federal standards that call for a 50 percent improvement in automakers’ vehicles by 2025.”

    How does one get into one of these studies? Common sense would tell you the outcome. I like the rubber bumper idea!
