Mark Richardson, editor for Wheels, has come up
with a unique proposition: vehicle-specific licenses. He proposes that people should be evaluated and licensed only to
drive vehicles they need or are able to operate responsibly.
Richardson points to the advantages of such a system the awarding of a vehicle license on a case-by-case basis: SUVs only for people who really need them (i.e. the segment's virtually eliminated overnight), no convertibles for the fugly among us, sports cars only for those people who can drive them responsibly, and no Harleys for orthodontists - just cus.
Of course, Richardson would
get special dispensation to drive any vehicle as editor of Wheels, as would we. Duh. Thankfully, this appears to be
Richardson's idea of an April Fool's joke.
