As pending in the Massachusetts Legislature, Bill S2159, as signed in Atoka, Macon, and North Central Texas Coalition of Governments, Item 7, minute 6:55.

THIS MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING  (“MOU”) is entered into as of the _____________, by and between the CITY OF ____________, (CITY) and JPods LLC. (JPODS), or assigns (“TBD”), each a Party” and collectively the “Parties”.

WhereAs:

  1. Mobility is physical liberty. Access to mobility should be equitable and sustainable.
  2. Liberty in free markets is required to innovate solutions to traffic congestion, pollution, and rising gasoline prices. 

Scope:        

  1. This MOU is intended to enumerate the general terms for the future FRANCHISE AGREEMENT (link) to implement JPods patent for solar-powered transportation networks and establish a solar manufacturing facility in Atoka. This MOU is non-binding the Parties. Patent aspects:
    • Grade-separated networks of self-driving cars: “A method of controlling a transportation System for moving people, freight, and any combination whereof using a distributed network of intelligent devices without requiring the aid of a human driver”
    • Solar-powered mobility networks: “The method… providing… Solar and wind power generators integrated into the physical Structure of Said transportation System….
  2. The  FRANCHISE AGREEMENT implements a 5X5 Standard, restoring liberty to innovate transportation networks in free markets:
    • Network construction must be privately funded.
    • Networks operate without government subsidies.
    • Networks must exceed 5 times the efficiency on existing roads (125 mpg or equivalent energy efficiency).
    • Networks pay 5 percent of the gross transportation revenues to the aggregate rights-of-way holders.
    • Networks exceed safety performance of transportation modes already approved for use in the Rights of Way.
    • Networks (optional) gather more than 2 megawatt-hours of renewable energy per network mile per typical day.
    • Governments will grant Rights of Way access using the existing Rights of Way policies for communications and energy networks.
    • Governments will use existing state laws to regulate safety of grade-separated guideways. Networks must be designed, fabricated, installed, insured, and inspected in compliance with existing  state regulations for grade-separated theme park rides (generally ASTM International F24 Committee). This provides a 3,000X better safety record than roads.

Constitution basis may be cited if desired in the WhereAs statement (see www.postRoads.com for background):

  1. The Boston Tea Party was a demonstration against a government transportation monopoly that triggered a war. To prevent Federal monopolies the US Constitution enumerates a limit of “post Roads” with “No Preference” in the facilities of commerce of one state over another; and,
  2. The Oklahoma Constitution forbids transportation and other monopolies: Article II, Bill of Rights, SECTION II-32. “Perpetuities and monopolies are contrary to the genius of a free government, and shall never be allowed, nor shall the law of primogeniture or entailments ever be in force in this State.”
