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.

Correct Street User Hierarchy: Demonstration Attempt by SV02ETU

We have noticed that in the unfortunately ongoing War on Motorists, Scotland has become "Travel-Plan-Daft-Land" where all attempts are made to force cars to the bottom of a supposed "road user hierarchy", below pedestrians, cyclists, public transport etc etc.

In the newish Scottish Government Policy Document "Designing Streets" (pdf) the needs of the hard-pressed motorist are all-but ignored, subsumed beneath the lesser transport modes, all in the name of promoting "a sense of place" and "liveable streets" . Whatever that means.

Thank goodness the down-to-earth drivers of Aberdeen Cars are too busy creating economic growth to worry about such flim-flam. Here, this video (shot using the handlebarcam of our undercover agent - Codename JannieJumbo - embedded deep within the naysaying cycling community) shows the driver of Aberdeen Car Seat Ibiza reg. SV02ETU establishing the correct hierarchy of road users: Cars before bikes!

We are, however, getting a bit worried about Codename JannieJumbo. As shown by the footage at the tail-end of the video, he appears to be falling prey to Stockholm syndrome.
