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.

Worried About Pollution?

Stay in your car!

There's been a lot of hand-wringing about pollution. Or emissions. It's all very confusing. Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrous oxides, gasses, soot, dust, particulates... and on and on...

Some say that some of these emissions cause "global warming". We're not scientists, so we can't say whether that's true or not. However, what we do know is that our colleagues at Bristol Traffic say - quite authoritatively - that climate change is caused by industrial pollution from the manufacture of too much cycle helmets and high visibility jackets. This assertion suits our agenda, so we're happy to blindly go along and agree with it. Unquestioningly.

Carcinogenic, smelly, eyewatering, climate wrecking, skin-wrinkling. This pollution stuff is nasty!

It's been said that Aberdeen has some of the worst town-centre air pollution in Europe. Best by far to stay in your climate-controlled and air-conditioned car.
