Most cars get smashed pretty bad between two semis. Nothing that gets good fuel mileage will survive being smashed between two semis.

Pretty stupid statement.

And people die in cars like BMWs and Mercedes at high speeds, as well.

I saw the Fifth Gear crash test of a Smart into a concrete barrier at 70 mph. Pretty impresive, actually, considering NHTSA and the like only test to 35 mph.
