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.

Control the Language, Control the Thought

The Scottish Chamber of Commerce have released their Q2 Business Survey. Here it is. In a small part of it we see some calls from the tourism industry for continued "transport infrastructure" improvements.

Well, that could mean anything, so we were delighted to see the reportage on the BBC's Reporting Scotland local news TV outlet, where the journalists quite rightly reported the SCC report employing the usual protocol:
"Transport Infrastructure" = Roads
Road Users = Motor Transport


Transport in Scotland = Motorcars and motorcars only. What else is there?
