It may be a trip to the doctor's office or to get groceries, they can make lasting friends in the process. Veterans who may have had similar injuries from overseas, they may find a lot in common going to a doctor's appointment with their new friend. At the same time, Utah has a problem with air pollution. Since most errends only require low speed vehicles that cause most pollution. A low speed cart would do the trick. Many of our aging baby boomers will soon not be able to drive safely by 2020; driverless carts would help with this problem, as well. Researchers are working on driverless, weather-enclose, and solar powered golf carts and the government should promote the private sector to mass-produce these carts. There would be one cart built for every 15 households to bring down costs. People would simply check out these carts through the Internet. There ought be a new way for both retirees and for injured veterans to pair up to do errands. Then you solve this isolation problem.
