Once again, we see an excellent example of the considerate nature of the drivers of Aberdeen cars.
Here, on North Deeside Road, close to Pitfodels Station Road, we see that the compassionate driver of silver-grey Honda CRV Diesel Estate 2.2 iDTec EX 5dr reg. H14 ABM has decided that the cycle lane is far too dangerous for cyclists to use, and has rightly deemed it to be far better a place to park than to ride a bike.
Any cyclist coming along and facing this sight would be left re-evaluating his transport choice - he would either have to cycle on the pavement (which isn't allowed) or move out into the 'taxpayer lane' where he would get in the way of important VIP taxpayer cars. Yes, the hapless cyclist would be forced to have a bit of a re-think about why he thought it was a good idea to cycle around the place anyway - getting in the way and showing off like that.
Everyone knows that the roads are far too busy to cycle on; far too busy with important people going about in their cars, contributing to economic growth and supporting the exchequer. Roads are not a playground, free for people to do-as-they-please and indulge their hobbies.
And, everyone knows that cycling is highly dangerous anyway, so by taking the matter into his own hands and discouraging this fringe minority hazardous activity, the clever and important driver of Honda CRV reg. H14 ABM has actually made the roads much safer. You see, now, it's not a "cycle lane", it's a much needed (and free) "parking lane" for road-tax payers only.
It's David Cameron's "Big Society" in action, right here, in Aberdeen!
And it's marvelous!
A blog about cars in Aberdeen.
This is a blog about cars in Aberdeen because most people aspire to the convenience of personal motor transport, pay dearly for the privilege, provide much employment, contribute greatly in taxes, and then people expect them to ‘leave the car at home’, while their money is spent creating cycle lanes and the like for freeloading cyclists.
