    I like that it's electric. Should cut down on a lot of pollution and gas consumption.

    Where's the arm to press the elevator button?
    If driving on the pavement (sidewalk to most of you) , they will only be legally allowed to travel at about 4 miles an hour,which is how fast an electric mobility scooter can go. A person on a bike will be a lot faster, & at least the pizza will still be warm.
    Also, I can imagine what'll happen when it meets a group of drunks, it'll end up on it's side , spinning it's wheels in vain.
