    Also saw them on Main street today as I was driving to the woods in my smart car. And by the way, the company doesn’t capitalize smart car, or run together smart and car. I don’t know what to do if you start a sentence with smart. Mary? What we have here in the U.S. is the smart fortwo car. Perhaps the source of confusion about what words to combine. I hope people had a chance to enjoy driving the cars.
