Here's a solution to rising gas prices........a pedal car

    This is pretty damn funny.

    A Montreal artist turns an old Buick into a pedal car. No engine, no brakes, no transmission, no floor.

    Just four seats with pedals. Can hit 15 kmh (that's about 9 mph for the metric-impaired)

    They decide to take it for a spin in downtown Toronto and get stopped by an unbelieving cop who tickets them for driving an unsafe vehicle.

    Judge throws out the case.

    Much hilarity ensures.

    Watch the video of the people in the car and the cop. About halfway through a bunch of cops on bicycles (the yellow jackets give them away), drive by, stop and you can practically see them thinking, "Christ, I'm glad that's not me who stopped that guy".
