Future of transportation is three wheels

By From page A8 | August 17, 2014

I have recently seen two new types of tricycles on our streets. One cycle is for adults, the other perhaps for children or small people. These tricycles will, I believe, become very successful in the future, especially when gas prices reach $49 a gallon.

Without a car, in today’s modern world, people will starve to death. They can’t get to work, supermarkets, school, etc. With a tricycle, people can get to all these places with ease. People can survive without a car.

In the good old days, we had “corner shops,” “corner vegetable shops,” “corner shoe repair shops,” etc. Today, to reach our superstores, we must drive a long way by car. To reach a store in today’s environment we need a car.

We must eliminate our reliance on cars. Most people on this globe can do quite well without a car. We need to compete with them in the world market.

The tricycles I have seen have a normal front bicycle wheel. Between the front and the rear part of the cycle is a male or female construction. The rear of the cycle has two wheels that are about a third smaller than the front wheel. The tread on the rear wheels is much stronger than the front wheel. There is a very nice large luggage compartment between the two rear wheels.

That is the future of transportation vehicles. I would like to have one of these new tricycles for Christmas.
