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! SV08LCO

Yay! This weeks PaveParker of the Week is the driver of Aberdeen Car SV08LCO.

Yes, congratulations to the driver of Aberdeen Car Vauxhaull Astra Sport (oooh!) 1.6i Design (ooooh!) who shows excellent technique on Aberdeen's Rubislaw Park Road.

The double yellow straddle, the 'flipped' wing mirror, leaving just enough room for the pestestrian to squeeze past without having to resort to "carraigewalking". It's all good stuff. We particularly liked the choice of PaveParking location - close to that rogue cone. This will cause the hapless (and carless!) pestestrian to have to execute a sort of slalom maneuver. This will humiliate them by moving them off of their desire line and reminding them of their proper place on the streets of Aberdeen - subordinate even to the cones! Quite right.

We have only one gripe with this weeks PaveParker: why is he not flashing his "exempts"? By this omission he runs the risk of being spoken to by a hated Community Warden. Flashing the hazards exempts is the sure secret way of demonstrating your importance and vitality to the local economy - thus causing the hated Community Wardens to leave well alone - they know what side their bread's buttered on!

However, perhaps it is that the driver of this Aberdeen Car is less certain of his status, driving a lowly Astra in Aberdeen's exclusive West End. You'll note he shares the road (and pavement!) with a Chevvy Jeep, a brand new Range Rover and one of those Porsche Cayennes - oooh we like them! Rubislaw Park Drive is quite steep, after all.
