Thinking about how fragile those small cars are now, I wonder if this car is safe to ride in anymore. If the roof is too damaged, the car is probably junked.
They’re pretty safe. Youtube is full of crash test videos. Basically the passenger compartment is a reinforced steel pod. So the car might be easily totaled, but the people inside are pretty well protected.
These 3D’s are looking less dimensional to me lately. Is it possible I’m going colour blind?
There’s something creepy to me about the way these incidents are being reported on and rubbernecked, like “not good, but actually kind of funny!” Causing thousands of dollars of damage and ruining a stranger’s week isn’t cute; it really sucks and I wish no such stress on my fellow man.
Now, if it were PT Cruisers on the other hand…
Also, cars don’t have hind legs so I wouldn’t put too much stock in that eye witness testimony…
Mission Mission is our daily salute to San Francisco's most vibrant neighborhood. We love it here, and we bet you do too.
