The "heavy commercial" second car scam

On Friday, I saw something that I'd never seen in Bermuda, nor would have ever expected to...and I saw it twice.

What was it?

A super shiny black Hummer H3 (and no, for the cynics, the Premier wasn't in it). Here's the wikipedia write-up which is more practical than the corporate site.

Absurd. I did a triple take.

A Hummer in Bermuda will probably gets 30 gallons to the mile on our roads, and this was clearly just a private vehicle with a commercial designation.

So some people won't be entitled to own a car, while others can bring in a ridiculous second car under the guise of a commercial vehicle.

Why on earth does TCD play along with this?
