At least one country is doing the right thing :D

I'd be happier to see housewives banned from driving anything in the US though.

I'm not a big SUV fan, but this seems a bit ridiculous to me.

1) What is defined as an SUV anymore? The line has been blurred so much anymore it is hard to differentiate between car and SUV anymore.

2) The arguement that SUVs take up to much space isn't completely true. My '00 Cougar, at 185 in, is the same length or longer than many SUVs and only a few inches narrower. My Mark VIII dwarfs most SUVs in length and is similar in width. Meanwhile my '68 Bronco is smaller than most cars in every dimension but height.

Good point. In my opinion, an SUV is anything built on a truck chassis (ladder frame, not unibody). Anything else is nothing more than a station wagon.

I've heard others define an SUV by the driving position - upright, high.

They won't ban mini-vans, doesn't Peugeot make that F1 Maclaren engine 800hp 1-60 >3sec minivan?

Sometimes I wonder if it's mandatory for any french politician to think on his/her feet and no need to be consistent in their thoughts. Probably saves them paper and file cabinets.

I meant ban mini-vans here in the US... :D
Oh, yeah and ban stupid teenagers driving while talking on the cell phone. Hell, they should ban everybody from driving while on the cell phone.
