The Robin was actually the product of a crazy road tax and licensing rule rather than an "innovative" thought.

Having fewer than four wheels meant that it was classed as a motorcycle rather than a car or a van, so it was cheaper to tax and you didn't need a full driving license to drive one.

Two wheels = good, four wheels = good, three wheels = erm, have we really thought this one through? It would be interesting to know how many people died in them over the years.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
