Still going strong, the Fiats: Punto and Linea.

Though I am not sure the Evo iteration has them proper. Unlikely.

I very often end up creating confusion since I have a Punto and a XUV. Even today I made my wipers work instead of flashing my headlamps against an auto-rick.

And please do correct me if my math is wrong, I'm terrible at it.


Eric, Your Math is perfect. You are right. 25m is the safe distance at 50 kmph and not at 100 kmph. Nice catch. The safe distance rule (meters) in germany - as explained by a colleague - is driving speed in kmph / 2. This value turns out closer to a 2 second rule. Just to clarify - the 3 second rule works universally.
