Not a car

Hello world! Here I am again, and I’ve got possibly the best news so far this year. I got myself a nice little vehicle. An early birthday present from my inlaws.


How about that?

Though it may look like it, this is not a car. It’s a Canta. A mobility aid.

I know. It’s old. Eighteen years old, to be precise. And it’s not exactly a beauty either, but it fits my needs perfectly.


My Canta is tiny and won’t go faster than 45 kmph (28 mph). They are designed that way, so they classify as mobility aids, and that’s the really great thing about them. Because this means I don’t need a driver’s licence, I’m allowed to drive it in bike paths and even on sidewalks and through shopping centers. I can park my Canta just about anywhere I want – like on the sidewalk in front of my house.

Despite its small size, it can still seat two people comfortably. And then there’s still room left to take a wheelchair with me as well. (Now if only I finally got my wheelchair, cause I really need the dratted thing.)

And now, because I know you’ll all want to see my Canta in action, here goes:

Earth dwellers beware. Liam’s got a Canta!
