The number of people who saw them the first time running on the road seemed to have the same confusion of what it is. I was the same way.

Slingshot is a 3-wheeler part-car part-motorcycle. It is not an automobile as it has no airbags and does not pass the automobile safety and fuel standards. Basically, it is not under the same regulations as automobiles.
