Hey, small car drivers ? Guess what ?!

So you know when you're in a really cute little car ?  It's great isn't it, the way you can fit into tiny car parking spaces.

And when you're pulling out from a side road during morning peak hour, and you see a gap in the traffic, and all that's approaching is a cyclist at about 40 km/h with right of way ?

Pulling out just a metre or two in front of me doesn't work any better because you're in a small car. You're still a metal box that weighs almost a tonne. I still nearly ended up in your (tiny & cute!) back seat, you reckless cow. Hand your licence in with an apology that you're too stupid to drive.

Your car doesn't get any smaller and lighter becasue you take a deep inwards breath before plunging into oncoming traffic.

And that in turn means that morning peak hour would suddenly look like this;
