My SparkEV came through for me again today.
I was on the up side of a hillside trying to turn across traffic and waiting for oncoming traffic coming down the hill to clear. My blinker was going, and I had the brakes on so the car coming from behind should have seen I was stopped. But no! All of sudden I realize I have a full size van right behind me, closing in too fast! I slammed my foot on the accelerator and shot ahead of him. In an ICE car, I probably would have been smashed from behind. I know I would have been hit if I had been in a Prius C or Yaris. They’re cute but gutless.
As I’ve stated in other posts, I truly feel, when looking at safety, we must also take into consideration how well a car avoids an accident.
I continue to believe my Spark is safe and a real gem!
