Governor OKs fuel efficient vehicle

It took a new law for Doug White, an architect and environmentally conscious citizen, to register his Low Speed Vehicle (LSV).  It is a four-wheel electric car which produces no emissions and is half the size of a regular car.  "I think this is great," White said after receiving his registration. Governor Charles Turnbull made registration legal when he approved a change in V.I. code to allow licensing of electric or solar vehicles which can travel at 20 miles an hour.  White had been trying to register his vehicle for five years.  Finally, after petitions from St. Johnians, a bill was introduced in the Senate to authorize LSVs.
