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.

PaveParker of the Week! DS09YND

Congratulations are due to this week's PaveParker of the Week!

Yes, the driver of Aberdeen Car Vauxhaull Insignia 2.0 CDTi SRi Nav 160 (note the stream of numbers and letters which denote importance) demonstrates advanced PaveParking technique on Aberdeen's Broomhill Road, outside the Europcar National car hire agency.
  1. Use of the dropped kerb to facilitate PaveParking
  2. It is a restricted waiting zone, with a single yellow line. But to discharge this, the driver has activated the hazards exempts.
  3. The driver is engaged in philanthropic educational activity.
It's that third item - philantrhopic educational activity - which is the greatest boon to Aberdeen "City and Shire" and so this the reason why this driver is our PaveParker of the Week!

Do you see the young mother, struggling to get the pushchair past the PaveParked vehicle on her way to the shops (which are on the other side of the sea of cars negotiating the mini-roundabout)?

Yes, that's the lesson for this young child, this baby Aberdonian:
"Welcome to life! Welcome to Aberdeen! City of cars where the pavements are for losers. Grow up fast, kid - and then you'll be able to get yourself a nice wee car and leave your days of pavement use behind."
