Yeah, I guess a gasser can't exactly be called a Neighborhood ELECTRIC Vehicle, now can it.

"These are vehicles that don't have to meet basic federal safety standards that regular vehicles have to meet, and they are low-speed, lightweight vehicles that are mixing it up on the road with vehicles that are much heavier," said Russ Rader, a spokesman for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. "The potential for disaster is there, but we haven't seen a lot of crashes yet."
I wish idiots who say crap like this would take a look at a motorcycle and tell me how they meet any crash safety standard.

They might use motorcycles in crash tests, but it's to see how well the 4 wheel vehicle held up after running over a motorcycle.

I pass the Sec. of State Facility in Niles, IL, on the way home from work everyday so I stopped in. They are not a full-service facility and referred me to the Elston Ave. Facility in the city. That's not far from work either, so I will stop there next week.

There's plenty of money near that guy's location. We all know the price is ridiculous, but the market he is after has no idea.
