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.

Cycle Lane Use in Rosemount

They spend all our Road Tax and Petrol Tax on Cycle Lanes and Advance Stop Lines and Toucan Crossings the like, and then you hardly ever see these facilities being used!

It really is regrettable when this happens, but we're pleased to say that the people of Rosemount Viaduct in Aberdeen's cosmopolitan City Centre are making great use of the texturecrete denoted cycle lane which is protected by "At Any Time" parking restriction with double-yellows and everything.

They own bikes, d'you see?

You see, all you need (like the drivers of these Aberdeen Cars) is to own a bicycle (it might be your young daughter's 'Barbie-brand' tiny pink trike with the sparkly streamers flowing from the handlebars which has been sitting at the back of the garage since 2003), and then you can use the Cycle Lane for whatever purpose you please! We think. It's a bit like TV licenses - you buy one TV license and you can have as many TV's in the house as you like. Similarly if you own one bike, you can use the cycling facilities any way you please. Spread the word.
