Back when I drove a Honda CRX, I once looked over at the Mini Cooper stopped next to me at the light and felt like I was in danger of being crushed.
When I changed that car for a 2007 GTI, I was very dismayed when I looked across at a Frontier next to me at the same light and our heights were even.
My CRv sits up fairly high for a regular vehicle, and I can see UNDER some of the stuff that pulls up along side me in town. I watched a video of some clowns timing themselves getting into one of those things. Best they could do was 2.8 seconds.
