We need to encourage car-pooling/ride-sharing as much as we can and car that only holds two people isn't the way to do it.
    We dont need to do either. People can decide for themselves. Auto makers are just there to satisfy demand.

A simpler solution would be a pay for use system (think cellphone or WoW accounts for you nerds). Car owners would have to deposit a minimum amount of say $100 into an account before the car became usable. Once depositing those funds, a code would be given and the car would function again.
    Too many ways to scam onthat deal. If you never drive/ride the car, you never have to pay for it?

    I want to thank any of you in advance if you buy one.

    That will leave more gas for me to use in real cars.

    It also means that, in many states, you (and any passenger) must be wearing a safety helmet.
