The dude in the blue Yaris came out of the car and bounced into the oped door! That will leave a mark for shizzle.

I was actually pretty surprised how well these little cars were doing in the 40mph front offset crash tests a couple years ago, but they were into an object and not into another car. These head on tests are really an eye opener - not that I didnt expect the bigger vehicle to win - but how badly the smaller car lost... These arent even full size cars, they were midsize. To say nothing of something like my superduty!

Complimentary life insurance policies might make these car more marketable.

No way, you mean when a bigger vehicle hits a smaller vehicle the smaller one gets damaged more? who'd a thunk it.
