      >Low Speed Vehicle Crash Tests
      >Transport Canada has conducted crash tests of low speed vehicles
      >to find out what happens to drivers and passengers when these
      >vehicles enter into collisions with rigid barriers and other
      >motor vehicles that comply with crash test regulations.
      >A low-speed vehicle may look like a car, but it is not a car. It
      >is not required to meet the large number of safety standards (up
      >to 40) that a regular passenger car must meet. The low speed
      >vehicle class was originally intended for controlled low speed
      >environments, like gated communities, where the risk of a LSV
      >entering into a collision with a faster motor vehicle would be
      >lower than on public roads. Transport Canada's crash test results
      >to date confirm that low speed vehicles provide a substantially
      >lower level of occupant protection than conventional passenger
