Question Why is it...

Why is it that STUPID people drive Smart cars?... OR, the worst drivers are always in an Audi, Lexus, Volvo, BMW, or other high priced car? I think that drivers should have to pass an IQ test to get a license. Stupid people shouldn't be allowed to drive any car in any state.

Wow roadkill. that has to be one of the most stupid statements i have read in a while.
If you were to ever drive a audi, bmw or mercedes you would understand why people buy them.
The build and ride quality,safety,handling, power and economy are a few of the reasons why.
I drive a mercedes and after owning one would not buy anything else.
So that makes me stupid?

Lol rappey you didn't do yourself any favors not looking stupid, by completely miss reading what he wrote lol.
He isn't calling people stupid for driving those cars. he is saying that for some reason all the stupid people that don't know how to drive tend to be driving really nice/expensive cars.

It was stupid OR worst..
A smart car is mercedes so it falls under both of roadkills categorys !

Some of the worlds best drivers also drive merc,bmw,audi.. and no doubt some very clever people also drive smarts .

Every car brand will have bad and stupid drivers, so to single out particular brands is just daft.

the valid part of the statement though would be about iq tests and licensing.
the way some people drive it makes you wonder how the hell they ever passed a test in the first place.

From my own experience, I've found that people who drive those expensive cars seem to feel that road rules don't apply to them... such as using turn signals and stopping completely at stop signs. No, no road rage stories to tell, but many close calls. Yes, I have driven many of the cars I mentioned, but that doesn't change my opinion of those drivers... in general.
A Smart car is only as smart as it's driver.
In case any of you are wondering, I DO have a very good driving record.... Over 35 years with no tickets or accidents.

Unfortunately there are people out there that just should not be allowed to drive anything. Period.

haha you should come down to my neck of the woods. i live next to the Navajo reservation and i swear there is not one navajo that knows how a 4 way stop works and they drive 50MPH max down the highway, but most of them drive old chevy pickups or new f-150's.

I'm Navajo and live on the reservation. I know how a 4 way stop works. As far as going down the highway, I average 75-100mph. But I'm sure I'm one of the very few Navajo's that know how to drive. The ones that don't know how to drive Navajo or non-Navajo really piss me off. Especially the dayum tourists we get up here in Kayenta every year.
