Re: What car do you drive?

there's a study out claiming that self-driving ("autonomous") vehicles are going to cause gridlock in our cities
Mean streets: Self-driving cars will 'cruise' to avoid paying to park
the theory is that rather than pay to park, they'll just drive round in cicles, and will do so as slowly as possible to save fuel

 I think at forty I will need a reliable family car, standing in a garage in case 

Cars have become a liability; TCO is too much. Better to hire a car when you need it.

And think of  asthmatic school kids in the big city.

BTW diesel oder ..?

"Japan Driving Test


Failing to stop a traffic light is an immediate fail much like the UK however Japan will also penalise you if you do not stay far left enough in the lane or for not bending down low enough to check for cats or children before driving off."

The Lamborghini tractor (only 1.5 seats) did not have the effect as planned, so hopefully soon a 7-seater! but have to look at the budget, quite expensive with so many seats! Size matters, but also number of seats!

V nice! I've always fancied a Lambretta. Never a Vespa. Vespas should be squashed. Especially vespa velutina.

I always had a yen to own the car Patrick Mcgoohan drives in The Prisoner. Now sold as a kit and is very pas cher. However the great tragedy is that at 6’5” I am too big to fit in the damn thing.
