Why does Pittsburgh get congested? Because there is accidents, they happen because people speed. If we stop the speed issues, then we can solve many things. But we need to put a system in all vehicles as part of its design, so they can't crash. Sensors are good, but all vehicles are heavy. Why not have light weight vehicles that can use 100% of there drive transmission? Stop creating vehicles that can operate above the state posted speeds. Why do we do this. It just creates issues. What is the point of having acceleration pad in a vehicle that you step on to go faster, if it is not made to go down to the floor.  If you do press it to the floor you can cause death and receive tickets as a result . Do we need this? I don't, I'd rather get to my destination safely and in a fun way.

Describe who will use your solution (1,000 characters)

All legal citizens with liscenses will be able to use the new. Redesigned cars, and machines.

Tell us about your team or organization (500 characters)

I am alone at this time. If my voice and skill is chosen primary designing will be $500+ per unit approximately. Designs will call for alluminum sheet metal, and of course several stainless steel bolts to secure design parts and frame to be 100% secure. The interior will be fitted with a wooden layout. Dashboard, knobs, and steering controls will be done out of strong hard woods.

Size of your team or organization

  • I am submitting as an individual

Funding Request

  • No funding is required

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

The new designs would be rented. Funds earned would go back to creating more vehicles and continued vehicle enhances. The second version of vehicles could be sold, after data was collected for the first 1-3 Months. Depending on feedback and enjoyment of the new designs.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

How much easier to drive are they? Is it fun to drive? Now that you drive the speed limit your not getting any tickets yes or no? Or you want more tickets?
