"HEDGEHOG KILLERS !!!!" York Warnings Or Dangers Tip by DAO

This is a Reliant Robin. Yes it is a car. Yes it is a car with 3 wheels. Invented in the 1970?s this odd little vehicle has a reputation for killing small, cute, little hedgehogs. Just think about it. With a 4-wheeled car Mr. Hedgehog may actually be passed OVER by the car instead of squished into road pizza by the tyres. Mr. Hedgehog doesn?t stand a chance with these little cars. The front wheel will mash anything the rear tyres don?t manage. Bummer for Mr. Hedgehog.

By the way these things can do 80mph (129 kph)! Not necessarily a grand idea on a vehicle that could flip more easily than a normal car. Before you laugh at these odd cars or react in horror at the wildlife killing abilities ? consider this:

They pay less road tax because of the small engine and they can have air-conditioning and good stereo systems. They also will cost you less to buy than a nice new 4-wheeled car, get VERY high road mileage and petrol costs more than $8 a gallon here.

Hmmm?..maybe I won?t kill THAT many.
