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.

West End Closed Road Misery

Just as the snow clears from the side roads of the city's ever-popular west-end, and just as the drivers of Aberdeen Cars can begin to set about restoring their long-term average speed (having been forced to drive around the icy streets at less-than-optimum less-than-speed-limit velocity for the last two weeks) we notice this outrage:

This perfectly good road which would otherwise connect the city's west-end streets Stanley Street and Union Grove has been bollarded off. A handy secret rat-run for busy commuters in the know cut off in it's prime.

What's worse, pestestrians and cyclists are not impeded by these pesky barriers at all and can be seen choosing this road as a preferred route! These tax-dodgers are laughing at us.

We should get rebates in both our road tax and council tax!
