That's why I drive a small car and why small cars are popular in the

I made a driver's licence in a Yugo :-)
Small cars are now (and also that time to be fair) far far better than
Yugo. For example: Volkswagen Polo with a diesel engine can on the
open road make 79 miles with one gallon of diesel. It can comfortably
run at speeds which are within the speed limits and is probably as
safe as Hummer and similar monsters.
Big cars like that are generally made for big egos. Those who need a
big car will for sure not buy Hummer.

Also, this idea that having a large vehicle is all related to ego is
pure bull. I know of lots of people who drive small cars that drive
them for ego purposes.... There are a lot of small cars around that
guys have hot-rodded, i.e. added turbo's, exhaust systems, performance
chips, suspension kits, etc.... That's ego driven in young guys and
they are small cars, Honda's, Mazda's, Toyota's, etc....
The size of the car has nothing to do with the size of the ego of the
person driving it.... If there were a link between the two there would
be no high-end Audi's, BMW's, Lexus's, Porche's, Infinity's, etc....
Even VW makes a high end small car that requires ego on the part of the
buyer or they wouldn't shell out the kind of money VW is asking for it.
I'm simply amazed at the amount of what seems to be brainwashing on the
socialist side of the political spectrum. Many people by large vehicles
simply for the safety aspects of having a large vehicle, as the mass of
the vehicle assures that in a wreck with another vehicle you have a
greater chance of surviving or coming out of the wreck with fewer injuries.
