The latest transport has a fuel economy of 0 gallons per mile on a mixed urban cycle, negligible maintenance costs, built-in air conditioning and very low emissions (depending of course what I've had for lunch).
There are other advantages, of course. This being Norfolk, the fact that it is not a car means that people won't point at it as it goes past. I may also be able to build up a sideline in knife sharpening and handing out goldfish to young children ( making sure that I don't get the two services mixed up!)
The only down-side is that the open access trailer could present a security threat and be an invitation to light-fingered thieves to make off with valuable packages of rag and bone stock. Fortunately we have the perfect ready-made deterrant which will see off any criminals who may be in the vicinity.
