What about compartment safety?

I would buy that because its so light, but I'd worry about safety with other vehicles on the road, plus I wouldnt want a vehicle that looked too odd, rather have something that blended in nicely.

Maybe if they actually came out with this, they would get everyone to allow four-wheeled bicycles (presently two or three wheels in contact with the ground is the most common thing included in legal definitions of whether things are bicycles or not, at least in the USA).

I'd love to be able to build the next "SB Cruiser" as a quadcycle instead of just a trike--it could take corners quicker / harder when necessary (not often, but sometimes) and it could carry more stuff, in a better way.
