Can't be street legal

@sensei258: Looking at their website, they say it is. I guess just not the highway.

Can't be street legal

You'd think so, but I've seen them driving on the streets. Somehow they are getting away with it.

Yes. their website says street-legal ("Rent a Go-Kart on the plublic road") but whether they are street-sensible or not is debatable. It can only be a short time before a kart and its driver disappear under a truck or bus

They have license plates on the back. Saw them driving in Hiroo and Shibuya and thought the same (how can these be street-legal)

@sensei258 @Strangerland @smodgy @keitai: 100% street legal, the use the mini car plate, 50cc engine max, I own a street legal ATV using the same plate. Yes I've been pulled over a few times by clueless cops, one even yelling at me.

The law is that any vehicle that has a 50cc engine with a front light, indicators and break light that can stand up by itself (ie. not a bike) can get this plate. Ever see one of those delivery bikes (50 cc) and the guy with no helmet and a light blue plate... registered as a mini car.

Perhaps we should all replace cars with these Mario Karts to conserve fuel, decrease carbon emission, and eliminate traffic congestion and accidents.

It's legal and they have events almost every weekend, but you need to have driver license to operate them.
