Dispatches from our War With The Bollards and the promoters of Bollard-dom.
Thankfully, the driver of Aberdeen car YY06ZPE is much cleverer than the Bollard-mongering forces which seek to restrict his freedom movement and right-to-park. In this case, the forces of Bollard-dom have displayed their stupidity and have left just enough room for the driver of this BMW roadster to get in about and park his lovely sports car off the road. Thus reducing his insurance premium, probably. He's clever.
He cocks a snook at the Bollarders by crossing the double-yellows, and using the dropped-kerb pestestrian crossing bit to squeeze his lovely roadster off the road and onto that bit that used to be a garden outside the window of his two-room ground-floor Victorian tenement flat on the corner of the city's Union Grove and Annfield Terrace. That'll make him feel all lovely and secure. As he sits, continental lager in one hand - readymeal in the other - slumped in front of the plasma on the sofa of an evening, blasted by the daily commute to his spreadsheet-wrangling office job, he'll be able to glance out the window and see his lovely roadster - just there! When he sees it, he'll know full-well that his work of international importance creating much-needed economic growth for Aberdeen "City and Shire" to be the dynamo to pull the whole of UK plc out of the slump is worth it! Just look at the reward it brought him - a lovely roadster. If he could, he'd park it in the bedroom.
For this display of dedication, the driver of this BMW Z4 Roadster 2.5si "sport" (ooooh!) is made a full General in our Anti-Bollard League. Congratulations!
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.
