Saw a prius trying to pass a newer STI, but the STI kept on changing lanes so he couldn't pass. When I got even with the sti, I looked to see who this idiot was then he thinks I want to race him....

I'm more disturbed that in the past year, I've seen 2 cars lose a wheel at full highway speeds while the rolling impending doom sped by in front of my car at high speeds.

wow.
Actually, the Prius will stop about 4 inches after it hits the bumper of the car in front, so it almost never takes 131 feet.

My 7 year old likes to play a game whenever we drive. He gets 1 point for a "Stink wagon" (Prius), 1 point for a "clown car" (Smart fourtwo), 10 points for a police car (to keep ME out of trouble), and a point for a "slug bug" (classics never die).

He came up with the nicknames for the Prius and Smart. He is definitely a true gear head.

The prius wheel's literally locked up and the car slid about 6 inches into the car in front of it because the awesome gas saving tires couldn't grip the road

just saying....if you replace "bag" with "bang", this story gets much more interesting.

Damn WholeFoods song now stuck in my head

Sure, part of this is driver error/lack of attention. But a big part is design/structural integrity/vehicle purpose.

OP, looks like the Prius V (and Camry) are even worse than the original Prius in terms of crash testing. I've seen a few roll-overs on the 280 in NoCal that looked terrible - post-impact carcasses looked like stomped Coke cans.

... while the DB9 can do 60 to 0 in less than 100ft:

I was rear ended in my BMW by another BMW that had better brakes than me. Good brakes mean nothing when you're texting and driving I guess..
