It puzzles me as to why these side-by-side quads arent street-legal in urban areas. When you see video or photos of countries like India, or the Phillipines there are jitnies(spelling?) crowding the streets-not Exploders or those awful Escalades with only one occupant. I wouldnt recommend getting one out on the freeway, but in-town or out in the rural areas they would be a big relief to traffic congestion. The state could also profit by making them a licensed vehicle. The way I see it; if you can drive a car legally, then why not a really small one not made by the "Big Three" ? As far as safety is concerned; Darwinism at its finest.....

It's all about safety. I wouldn't call one safe at any sort of speed, it looks like you'd roll one at any sort of speed. Plus, I wouldn't want to be in one in an accident. I know motorbikes are just as unsafe there, but they have the speed and the maneuverability to hypothetically GTFO of the way.

Although, in a lot of places, especially more remote ones, they are road-legal. I know in Yellowknife you can get road permits for side-by-sides (As well as quads with road tires), and Whitehorse is considering the same thing.

Dump the transmission and the transfer case and go with 4 electric motors, one for each wheel. Saves weight and gets all of that junk out from underneath the vehicle.
