The first time I had ever seen one on the road was in Canada. And I've seen a few of them up there too.

Crazy Canadians.

You're not the only one. I'd drive one too. Heck, that'* why I drive a Honda Civic now. Reliable and very cheap to operate. Handles 110 miles a day without missing a beat! Plus, a small car is actually pretty handy on road trips. Just can't beat the gas mileage. You just have to remember what you're driving. They're not tanks....

This design creates a very strong safety cell around the passengers. However, it also subjects them to higher forces during an accident than in a conventional car.
They are pretty safe for their size.
umm not there not safe. they may not crush and the car Passenger area might be good still, but because there is not crumple Zone your body is taking ALL of the forces not the car

I have seen one in the US, but the first time I saw one was in Ireland in '05, the very first one i saw was painted with the number 42 alll over it, the number just overlapped itself until there was no uncovered place, it was hilarious looking!
