Actually thats a fairly drastic prophosal. 25,000 isn't a very large community. Heck the little city I live in is 25,000. Maybe limit families to one vehicle over say 2 liters.

How about "No one who lives where it snows shall be allowed to drive a four wheel drive vehicle (all wheel drive included) that gets a gas mileage lower than 25mpg more than 10,000 miles a year."
That way goons in California won't make they're 50 mile a day round trip in they're gas guzzling SUV. It would still allow for play vehicles but would limit them to play type uses.
OR even limit engine size to 4 liters for most all vehicles.
OR even limit mileage to a minimum of 20mpg for big vehicles and 30mpg for small ones. Use weight and size for deciding factors. Keep cars to the higher limit.

Somethings got to be done...
