Real Life Flintstone Car Pulled Over by Police

A Toronto artist, wanting to make a point about gas consumption, modified a Buick (no engine, no transmission, candles for headlights) and made it so that it’s propelled by its passengers.  He calls it a “shared propulsion vehicle.”

“The car, which has a top speed of 15 kilometres an hour, requires all four occupants to pedal and work together — a sharp contrast to the solitary, effortless experience of a typical car.  As the Crown prosecutor tried to make his case Thursday, the court erupted in laughter, and the charges were thrown out.”
