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.

Awful. Really disturbing.

A new phenomenon stalks the pavements of Aberdeen. A danger, an imposition. It's a dreadful inconvenience and we'll do everything we can to make sure it's removed.

Yes, the first example shows an inappropriately placed bollard on Aberdeen's Albyn Lane which has prevented the driver of Aberdeen Car Peugeot 106 XL reg. P815SNP from using the pavement to facilitate his or her desire to PavePark in the usual manner. This disgusting bollard has actually damaged the wing of this nice car, thus rendering it less nice. It's a disgrace.

The second example shows an inappropriately planted sapling tree on the pavement of Aberdeen's Broomhill Avenue. (Trees! On an avenue! Imagine!) This disturbing and unwelcome addition to the urban environment has prevented the driver of Aberdeen Car Renault Megane Scenic 'Expression' (oooh!) reg. MW55UBS from making best use of the pavement for proper PaveParking. Not only that, the tree has inconsiderately blocked the rear passenger door. This is really dangerous, as any rear passenger will now have to exit direct into the carriageway, where any passing motorist will be perfectly within their rights to mow them down. Moreover, trees attract dangerous insects and rodentia and often drip corrosive sticky sap onto innocent, clean, nice cars, thus rendering them less nice.

Something must be done!
