Green

Electric cars like this one are legal to drive in Telluride. I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before, but the speed limit is 15 mph on all of the streets in town.

What a cute little car! Driving around in one of those would sure eliminate any worries about the price of gas.

We have "street Legal" golf carts here. It would take a lot of guts for me to drive one with all the crazies in their land yachts speeding about.

There are retirement communities in Arizona where driving golf carts around on the streets is very common.

We went to Catalina Island for 4th of July several times. Golf carts are common there, and on the 4th of July they have a golf cart parade, led by the University of Southern California marching band, and people in town decorate their golf carts and make patriotic floats out of them. It is a lot of fun.

I think we'll be seeing more and more of these. Which is fine by me. This looks like a car my Mom won back in the 1960s in a writing contest. Unfortunately, she wouldn't give it to me - she sold it almost immediately!

Never forgave her for that! ;-))

15 mph .... that sweet little car probably gets passed by skate boarders.

15 MPH? Might as well lock me up as soon as I cross into town.

I love the idea of an electric car, but I think I want it to be bigger and look safer. Of course, at 15 mph, maybe the damage wouldn't be too bad if you did crash! God forbid.

15mph? I like that! I think people should learn how to slow down. And with a green car like this, it's even better!
