...maybe that's one reason Europeans aren't as big as Americans despite suffering from the same food industry: we have smaller houses, smaller cars and smaller roads and we'd like to continue being able to use them. For us, that sedan isn't cramped, and it can drive on our narrower roads and park in our smaller spaces comfortably. Most of the roads my GPS takes me on when I let it avoid traffic lights (which it hates for some reason) wouldn't be wide enough for that Chevy.
