    They would also be prohibited from travelling on major highways and toll roads, but permitted only within a 15 kilometre range of their registered home base.


  • PARTICIPATION IN THE COOP by component manufacturers.
  • MARKETING INNOVATIONS A suggested business-chain structure beginning with:
    • Cooperative standards-setting and competitive production of components,
    • Assembly of the vehicles in each of the States.
    • Marketing and retail/rental sales agents at a local level
    • And a more equitable way of handling road-licensing charges and insurance for such vehicles.
