Normally I'd Not Bother, But...
I'm sick and tired of being run off the road, nearly run over and terrorised by idiots driving 4WD's in the city streets, so I've decided to open my own little Facebook group called South Australians Wanting To Ban Those Pieces of Crap 4WD's From Adelaide. The description says, "Sick and tired of seeing those shitty Burnside Buses, or the Norwood Cabbies driving along the city streets spewing pollution, causing accidents because they can't bloody drive anyway and you can't see past them when turning. I'm not the only one who's sick of being stuck behind one of these clueless twats who think they rule the roads so let's get together and raise numbers to have ALL 4WD's banned from the streets of Adelaide. Generally it's one person driving them, no passengers outside of a gay Poodle and they're utterly useless. And let's face it, only arrogant wankers drive them."
In all seriousness, there's no need, nor any logical reason why large so called 'people movers' should be on the streets of a city with one clown behind the wheel of an empty car. We catch the bus into work and walk home (hence the weight loss) and the amount of times we see these things barrelling along with total disregard for anyone else on the road is incredible. It's almost as if once you buy one you have to have a total brain removal to drive one, and naturally, the less members of the family the better. And let's not even look at how the mothers clog up the streets near local schools, double and triple parking, stopping in the middle of the road, just to enable them to pick up ONE bloody kid.
Get real. It's time these vehicles were banned from city and suburban streets completely. Personally I'd like to see a petrol tax on them - raise the cost to $2.50 per litre and see how much of the environment you'd save, not to mention the reduction in carbon emissions.
So if you like this cause then get behind it and join up now - you don't even have to live in Adelaide. If I get enough people involved I might take it further.
