Most of the bonus zones don't allow for any easy expansion past the bonus zone.
Zoe-moe-joe and Casper aren't too bad to hold out in either, though as mentioned expansion in each is generally limited.
Removing the Hal-Daddy Car border could make for Hal-Lara-Kristin bonus zone to have a little more expansion possibility than before. But doing so removes some of the symmetry you've established (such as in the top of the map, Swoosh and Daddy's Cars border neighboring bonus zones while in the bottom of the map Mommy's Car and Zoom do not).
so aside from removing the hal-daddy car border, any other solutions?

i have no idea. it was suggested i name them like families/communities (ie. Johnsons, Andersons etc)

done in the next update.
