Macron has allowed it to go ahead. Its Macron who has now declared that the measure is a 2 year trial ...mainly because its so unpopular .
It has always been a 2 year trial since the original proposal but don't hold your breath about it being repealed UNLESS Macron has it cancelled and is seen as "listening to the people" as a vote gainer.......

cynical?

Moi?

How could you even think such a thing..........

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

As far as the mini cars go, I think they are a great idea, (I'd have one for shopping) unfortunately they are too slow for the traffic around them, so they cause a moving chicane with impatient drivers passing them at the wrong time in the wrong places, otherwise it's only like two cyclists riding abreast, except they are more vulnerable, they should be at least insured though where cyclist are not.

I wonder if they would be legal on our roads?

I did see someone was going to import them Kev to use as 'toads'. But not sure it happened. Then theres the G-Wizz.

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

That occured to me too, you could maybe use them like the Q-Pods only lift up the back and lock the steering, you may need a jack as it's the engine end to be lifted..

Presumably they would be as they carry a registration (often but not always) so could be used anywhere in the EU as they would comply with French reg laws........

Mind you it would take a LONG time to drive to the tunnel or anywhere in one.....

I believe they are also expensive but will have a look.....

From nigh on 11000Ä so not a cheap option......

The Peel P50 is I believe still available and received funding from Dragon's Den in 2011.

But is it legal for the UK? I thought that it complied with Indian rules but needed considerable modifications to comply with VOSA standards.....

The answer appears to be YES but it comes in two forms; as a kit or as a ready-built car

£6500 for the kit and £8500 for the ready made...
