Smart? Maybe not

This is funny, but a little scary:

When the driver of a large truck on the German autobahn felt a slight bump, he thought it was a stone in the road. In reality it was a Smart ForTwo driving about 60 mph. The truck pushed the little car two miles before the police stopped him to make him aware of the hitchhiker. The Smart driver had the best line: “I tried to drive away but couldn’t. I looked up through my sunroof and could see the driver, but he didn’t notice me.” Thankfully, no one was hurt in the incident but it is scary to think about.

The reasons not to drive these little cars keep piling up, which is too bad, since they seem cool. The other reason being that evidently Smart-tipping is some new deranged form of urban cow-tipping that has become quite popular.
