It prohibits development of ultralight 4 wheeled transportation which would be much more sustainable than the 2,000 kg monsters we are stuck making now. This mandate killed Aptera.
3 billion people cannot all have a 2,000 kg car that costs $40,000.
All you have to do,is rearrange the ink on the page,to make that regulation go away.
A Presidential Executive Order could do that.
I could mass-produce 100-mpg+ commuter cars at no more than $11,000 each,all day long.No technological barriers at all.Just bureaucrats.
