You can't get too much smaller than the Pug. With the Roadgrid turned off, it's limited to 30 cm altitude, and 70 km/hr. Of course, enterprising teens, the main market for these small vehicles, rapidly find ways of circumventing the governors. In some urban areas, there thousands of these, and on poorer worlds these are a main means of transport, often carrying outlandish loads strapped precariously on.
