Rising Gas Prices and Electric Cars

The recent suggestion by automakers to Ottawa to raise gas prices to cut emissions won't work unless an alternative to the pricey fuel is available.

What about either changing the rules applying to electric cars or manufacturing these cars to go faster? Another alternative could be to reduce speed limits everywhere to accommodate the 40 km cars. Although that option wouldn't go over well initially, once consumers enjoyed the savings in fuel costs there might be a different prevailing opinion. Not only that, there might be a safety benefit to a slower speed limit maximum.

Just my two cents for today...
