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.

Pampered Cyclists on Aberdeen's Urban Dual Carriageways

We've had about enough of this. Everywhere we look there is evidence that Aberdeen's cyclists are being pampered. Our esteemed local press was right to point out that the cyclists of Aberdeen "City and Shire" are a pampered breed.

And so it continues: this is what we have to put up with, this scandalous use of resources, this waste of road-space, the road space we've paid for.

Pampered cyclists!

All the more worrying is that this Aberdeen's South College Street, our most recently-completed urban dual-carriageway and a key feeder-road to our cause célèbre campaign: the threatened Denburn Road heritage dual carriageway. Which we have formed a pressure group to lobby the powers-that-be to save ('like' us on FaceBook, 'follow' us on Twitter). If cars can't get to the Denburn 'dualler' because of the dog-in-a-manger cyclits getting in our busy important way, then the dark forces of re-assignment might take it away from us.

We cannot let that happen!
