Questions about safety

One of the biggest questions I get when people hear that I am getting a Smart Car is.."Aren't you afraid that a semi truck will squish you on the road?". Honestly no. Not to be one of those "hey if its my time.." type of people, but honestly, an accident is never pleasant and with Mercedes backing this car I have a little more confidence that the engineering is there. Plus, if a semi wants to crush you on the road it doesn't matter if you are on a bike or in an SUV the physics will always favor the semi. I think the only thing you could feel truly safe in would be a tank. Anyway Smart has some of their safety specs online, but I think the best example is this video.
