Insight behind Smart Cars
I'm away on holiday at the moment, with little access to internet, so haven't had chance to post much.
Been taking photos though and noticed a good few Smart cars while in Spain and Italy. I must admit, I didn't think much of Smart cars when they first appeared. What I didn't realise was that these cars were designed with the insight that some drivers really struggle with parallel parking.
Smart Car drivers can park on streets without having to parallel park. They are so small and box-shaped that you can literally park with front bumper to path and fit in a normal parking space.
Not that this driver seemed too worried about finding a space.
