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.

Road Closed! Permanently.

It's been brought to our attention that a new menace stalks the freedom of the blameless Aberdeen driver. The permanently closed road! What's that all about, then!?!?

Not content with punishing the already-hard-pressed and tax-farmed motorist with increasing parking charges, our council in all its wisdom,has decided to further punish the innocent motorist by blocking off some of the favourite commuter rat-runs, thus rendering them usable only by tax dodging pedestrians and cyclists.

In this most egregious example, Rubislaw Park Road (formerly a handy high-speed short cut between Cragiebuckler and Kepplestone) is closed to the tax-paying VIP motorcar driver in favour of tax-dodging pedestrian pensioners who chat pleasantly to each other as they dawdle along, pushing an economically-inactive gurgling baby in a buggy.

It's a disgrace!
