The hand carts are making a come back. I almost hit one on the reservation the other day. They are using the old 4' or so tall bicycle wheels and are about 4' square with very light tube frames but with no warning lights or signs are not very visible on 65 MPH roads with little or no margin, a pretty dangerous idea.
