Sitka ZENN driver paves way for state medium-speed law

SITKA, ALASKA A Sitka resident’s efforts to register her electric car may lead to a change in state law.
About three months ago KCAW’s Robert Woolsey took a spin with Megan Pasternak in her new ZENN car when it arrived in Sitka. Although the ZENN, or Zero Emmission No Noise vehicle, was equipped to travel at speeds up to 35 miles per hour, Pasternak has had to settle for a much less convenient 25 miles per hour in order to get the ZENN registered.
Pasternak believes Alaska should join two other states in paving the way for medium-speed cars.
