So what about the guy that needs a vehicle to haul large and/or heavy things on the regular, but can't afford a second vehicle to drive empty? Does such an individual just get shoved aside in your system, and sorry too bad? I've been there; I had a fixer-upper house I had just bought and needed a pickup to haul things (at one time I had ~5000 lbs of topsoil in a half ton pickup bed.), but I couldn't afford to have a small car too. I only drove about a mile to work every day, and never left town with that pickup unless it was to go get a load of building supplies from Menards. The way I understand your previous statements in this thread you think that I should have been banned from driving that pickup empty to get to work.
