Here at Aberdeen Cars we love America and All Things American. Yes we do. We've been to Houston and we just love it!
So we're disturbed, very disturbed, by some of the anti-car news which seems to be coming out of America recently.
First, the pedestrianisation sorry 'pedestrianization' of Times Square and other bits of Broadway.
Then we hear of the burgeoning cycle movement in places like Minneapolis and Portland with their high number of segregated bike lanes, municipal bike racks, bike 'boulevards' (huh?) and other stuff we either don't understand or don't want to understand.
But now, and this is the worst, we noticed this on the TV:
Yes, that's Wall Street - the very name synonymous with buccaneering capital - has had one of New Yorks 'pedestrian plazas' imposed upon it over the last few weeks.
And just look what happened!!!!!
Coincidence? We don't think so...
