In recent years, the number of licence-free cars has grown substantially and they are now seen in normal use.
These automobiles have the tremendous advantage of serving people without a driving licence. The grounds for their not having a licence may be permanent (in the case of the elderly), or temporary (for young people under age 18), or accident-based (for people who have had their licence suspended).
In addition, cars not requiring driving licences are just the thing for city life (low space use, consumption and pollution). They offer users much greater safety than that of two-wheel vehicles.
In fact, analyses of accidents are clear on this point : quadricycles are the class of vehicles that causes the fewest accidents involving bodily injury (ratio of cars on the road to number of people killed and injured).
Beyond safety considerations, their societal role is highly significant. There is even good reason for them to become more and more popular in rural areas. Migration to the cities, and the disappearance of nearby businesses in small towns in favour of supermarkets, are forcing people to travel ever longer distances. At the same time, public transport, not proving to be cost-effective, is waning.
Cars not requiring a driving license thus provide users with the means to be fully independent.
