You can't effectively use a LEV (Light Electric Vehicle) or NEV (Neighborhood Electric Vehicle), in Grand Terrace.
WHY? Well the answer is the 40 mph Speed limit on Mt. Vernon and Barton Rd dividing our community and thus making it Illegal to drive an LEV or NEV to the shopping district or to 3/4th of the town.
Once upon a time there were no stop signs on except at the corner of Mt. Vernon and Barton Rd. NOW, we have stop lights at nearly every intersection on both streets. THESE lights slow traffic to effectively lower than 35 mph as an average sensible speed. BUT try to mention reducing the speed limit and you get a resounding NO.
It is a waste of fuel to rush and speed up to 40 between lights and stops. Opportunity to use an LEV and NEV should be encouraged not discouraged. IF we didn't spend 24, 000.00 for cars and 3.00 per gal for fuel, we may be able to work in GT and parent our children. OH lets not be progressive and selfsustaining. Solar panels can charge these little cars.
Who is doing the best for you?
