I don't know about you guys, but when a traffic light turns green I don't just step on the gas. I'm a little more paranoid in my Mirage and I make sure traffic has stopped before I pull away. This happened to me over the weekend. Some guy was either not paying attention or was trying to beat a yellow light. He ended up running a red light at 50+ mph. If I had just pulled out into the intersection, he would have taken the front end off my car. I tend to treat this car like a motorcycle with fenders since lots of people are driving vehicles that weigh twice what the Mirage does.
