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.

PaveParker of the Week! G3PPS

They say that schooldays are the happiest days of your life. Fun, companionship, the making of lifelong friends all combined with the foundation of knowledge that stands us in good stead throughout our journey through life.

That's why we were so pleased to see extra-curricular lessons in life being taught very close to Aberdeen's Broomhill Primary School on Broomhill Road.

Yes indeed, the driver of Aberdeen Car Land Rover Freelander 2.0 "Freestyle" (oooh!) reg. G3PPS is quite the philanthropist and has a special interest in the correct development of our young folk in Aberdeen "City and Shire".

This worthy winner of our PavePlarker of the week accolade is being sure to teach the children this invaluable lesson:
"Walking to school is for losers; cars have precedence, even on the pavements. When you're old enough, you too will be able to stamp your superiority on the streets of Aberdeen "City and Shire" by getting yourself a nice car and parking it wherever you like."

  1. 'cars have precedence, even on the pavements'

    How true.

    All too often cyclists get credited with being the primary danger to pedestrians on the pavement. Such credit is false and unjustified. For some unfathomable reason, Motorists* repeatedly fail to claim full credit for killing pedestrians on the pavement. Between 1988-2008, motor-vehicles killed 820 pedestrians on pavements, whereas those cyclists killed 3 pedestrians!

    * Motorists are defined as drivers & riders of powered motor-vehicles.
    Assumes 10% of pedestrian casualties occurred on pavement or verge as was the case 2007-2008.
    Figures from DfT.
