It is a commercially built and purchasable aircraft (powered glider really). It comes in petrol and electric versions. It is not solar powered. So a totally different category of aircraft.
Doomed, I tell you, Doomed
I believe that since 1996, in the US, new cars have to have OBDII. It has not stopped people owning older cars. The government has not taken them or required upgrades (what could OBDII tell you in a car from 1910? So no problem.
Apart from possibly, in the future, at some time, or in my imagination, mandating privacy invading policies.
Yes. And let them fugure out why their car was fucked and how to get it out of the way. There will be many willing hands to push it anywhere but where it is.
welcome to the 20th century. Build a bypass. But then the 21st century will rapidly catch up. So a highway around that. Then pedestrianise the town centre.
You do know that you are not supposed to drive your vehicle if you CAN NOT FUCKING SEE where you are going or what is driving at you?
I would have thought that there would be Darwin awards there.
Did you also know that backing off to give a large truck space to maneuver is also a good idea. Or perhaps stopping when there is a wall in front of you.
You do know that there is a break peddle along with the accelerator. Perhaps a clutch to confuse the american masses.
Sorry that was not directed at you but the concept of Americans not being able to drive. Roundabouts/traffic circles are not difficult. If you can manage a reverse parallel park then they are trivial.
By law, where I live, anything in front of you has priority. Pedestrian, Bicycle, car or pretty much anything (oddly dogs and cats are exempt). It is your responsibility to not hit something in front of you. You are the one driving, you are the one that can see what is in front of you (I hope) So it is your responsibility. It is odd that Jay walking laws do not exist in Europe (apart from Autobans, Motorways etc which are difficult to walk on to)
Oddly it seems to work
As a pedestrian crossing streets California I was bemused by the green light letting peds walk but still allowing cars to drive into the junction.

In many countries there is no statutory limitation for certain crimes such as murder or rape. Although there is for all other crimes.
In the US it depends on the state.
In sweden I have no idea. In the UK it is generally 7 years but some crime can never be absolved
New regulations grandfather in older vehicles as there tend to be few of them. Like most machines cars do tend to get old and die. Very few are given the attention and upkeep and welding and expensive parts replacement past a certain age. (not that the parts are expensive, the replacement of them is). Cars get old and most people do not care
New cars built after that date that is.
1996? that was when they were mandatory in the US I believe.
I have suffered this. Cards stopped working after using them once in Peru. Interesting call to say yes I am in Peru please let me use my money.
Lots of reasons why and many are for the best.
I can not comment on Santadar going for your wallet
