Take the GoCar around San Francisco

Matt Rudd took the GoCar around San Francisco and I remembered seeing one on my travels there last August!

Sixteen miles per hour and I’m absolutely terrified. You wouldn’t think a grown man could be terrified at such low speeds, but it’s because I’m being chased up one of those Steve McQueen hills by a tram. Unlike Steve McQueen, I’m not in a Ford Mustang. If I were, it wouldn’t be a problem, would it? But instead of the Mustang, I’m in a bright yellow buggy with a top speed of 40mph. That’s 40mph if you threw it off a cliff. Top speed up a San Franciscan hill seems to be 16mph. Sorry, 15mph. No… 13, 11, 9?

    Oh, that looks like fun! Does it even make it up the hill or do you have to get out and carry it?

    It zipped up that hill at a fairly rapid pace, maybe 15mph, but from that article it’s clear that you wouldn’t want to try any of the steep inclines! I’m sure it would have had a problem with this street. It was difficult enough simply walking up it!
