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.

A Battle Won in our War on the Bollards.
Yay! Outside a tenement on the city's St Mary's Place, the driver of this Aberdeen Car demonstrates the importance of their parking imperative by crossing the double-yellows, creating a new desire-line in the shrubbery, paveparking, getting as close as possible to the tenement-access stairs (preventing any less important people from using them) and - and this is the most vital part - finding a way to circumvent the strictures on parking imposed by the bollards which were planted there to prevent exactly what the driver of Aberdeen Car Citroen C3 "Picasso" (ooooh!) reg. SP09SXY has achieved in so exemplary a fashion!
For this most impressive and diagonal parking tactic, which demonstrates that the forces of bollard-dom are characterised by an approach which the intelligent drivers of Aberdeen Cars can easily overcome, the driver of this Aberdeen Car is awarded the field commission of Brigadier in our Anti-Bollard League. Congratulations!
