Cool idea for some cities Mike!

.... but unfortunately not for Houston   :-(    where it seems that every
other vehicle on the road is a full-size pickup truck ... or a larger

[In Cleveland, Ohio you had to look out for "Grandma Shidowski" putzing
along blocking traffic in her '62 Chevy Nova ... down here in Houston it's
"Abuela Hernandez" - and she's driving a '78 Dodge "dualie" - at a MUCH
higher rate of speed .... Big Difference!]

I had to trade my nice 4-cylinder Saab in for a V8 pick-em-up truck just to
get some 'road presence' down heah!   (wah!)   .... this is not a town to
try the go ped thing in!
