Smarter Cars?

Is it just me, or are there more "city cars" in the city these days? I think I'm seeing more Minis, Beetles, Smart Cars, and other compact models — and lots of Priuses, as ever. But I'm wondering if there are fewer "boats," as we call SUVs and other gigantic cars hogging the resident parking spots in Back Bay.

Maybe they're all spending the summer on the Cape, but I'm keeping my fingers crosssed.


  1. Hi!

    I happened across you blog and enjoyed reading a few posts.

    I'm putting together a theatre production in 2012 (BOSTONBLOGOLOGUES) and am seeking submissions from Boston bloggers to be performed by actors in Boston.

    If you'd interested & would like more information:
    Email me @ turnstyletheatre at yahoo dot com.

  2. We used our trusty Zipcar today. I'd bet that a good third of the cars in the city are not needed. If the owners only knew how much nicer it is not to worry about a car all the time.

    We zip and we rent cars and we spend the money we would have spent on a car dining out!
