Mayor Adrian Fenty has signaled his commitment to sustainability by trading in his SUV for a Smart Car. 

"I think everyone should do their part, but I have to be honest, a lot of people in our government and other governments have been going in that direction, so I just consider this my own individual part of what many D.C. residents are already doing, and that's trying to go with the smallest car as humanly possible that uses as little gas as humanly possible," says Fenty.

Great story and photos on The Washington Post's site, and also here and especially here.
