NEWS: Tuc Tuc Brighton!

Living in Brighton, I really should have told you about this one sooner but I'm afraid Treehugger got there first (the disgrace!).

The word (and wheels) on the street is that tuc tucs have come to Brighton & Hove!

They are out and about already and the great (and green) thing is the whole fleet is virtually zero-emission because they run on CNG (Compressed Natural Gas). They have even had their own filling station installed which will be available to the public too - so everyone can be green!

The tuc tucs come in a whole range of styles from the 'Brittania' to the 'Chavrolet'. Don't leave it to your imagination, check them out here - or better still, get down to Brighton and try one for yourself (by train of course - 3 or 4 adults can travel for the price of 2!).

And if you are a Brightonian or Hovian with a passion for tuc tucking, they are looking for drivers so why not email them for an application form?

Hey, they could be good for ethical weddings, couldn't they, with their (almost) zero emissions? Imagine, the whole fleet - the bride and groom leading the way with all the guests following buzzing along the seafront - what a picture!

Will report back once I've had the pleasure of riding in one...

Take care,
