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.

Queen's Road Parking Lane

Along with the driver of Aberdeen Car Ford Fiesta Diesel Hatchback 1.6 TDCi Tianium (oooh!) reg. SV60OKA we just love the Queen's Road Parking Lane.

But why oh why oh why is it so thin? And what's that funny oblong blue sign in front? Strange.

Heh, we're being disingenuous, of course! We know full well that this is supposed to be a cycle lane and that the glyph in the blue sign is a representation of a bike, showing that this is a so-called "preferred route" for Aberdeen cyclists.

We're just pretending we didn't notice. You never see anyone cycling in the cycle lanes anyway, and if you did, they'd have to continually slalom about the place to get in and out of the lane and go around all the perfectly legally-parked cars which have every right to be there! They'd then either have to cycle on the pavement (which isn't allowed) or cycle on the 'taxpayer lane' which is for cars only. In which instance we'd be perfectly justified in angrily honking our horns and shouting: "Get back in the cycle-lane you filthy unemployed hippy! Can't you afford a nice car like me? I pay Road Tax!"
