But seriously who would decide which people are allowed to
drive an SUV and who are not?

I have six kids, all but two are still in carseats or
boosters. I need a vehicle that will carry 8 adults
essentially. Cars cant carry my family. Most mini vans
are also too small, I could either put everyone in one gas
guzzler, or we could split up in two cars whenever the
entire family needs to go somewhere.

And I am sure that some people require SUV's for other
legitimate reasons, such as for the towing capacity. They
may only need to tow something like a camping trailer once
a year, and the rest of the year they drive around in a
"gas guzzler" that is not necessary most of the time.

If we are going to tell people what they can and cant
drive. Why dont we just start telling them how many kids
they can have, and require them to work within 10 miles of
where they live, etc, etc, etc. ?
