When will car manufacturers finally get it. This VW add for a Caddy is quoting ‘Destination: Back to school!’. Road safety, air quality, noise pollution and so many others things in mind scream for 1 thing: get rid of these cars, use your feet or 2 to 3 peddle powered wheels to get your kids to school. They’ll also get a free lesson in transport possibilities. Well, that’s education!
A great video from the You Tube channel of Stijn Wens…
Hard to imagine, but apparently some people in the USA tune diesel powered engines to produce even more exhaust flumes. The goal of this very visible form of intended air pollution is to entertain and to protest against environmentalism. Popular targets are Prius- and Tesla drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, protesters,… Luckily this practice is even in the United States of Trump illegal! By the way: There’s no such thing as cancer and for sure the ears of the youngster are very well protected!!
Alert users of the Antwerp Velo-bikes taught this driver a lesson in car parking…
From a De Standaard docs series (not all in English, click pictures to see the video)… We know this for years, when do the majority of cities start? Especially my home town?
Audi released a rather strange ad for the A4 quoting it’s the ‘Best selling fleet car of the year’. The ad continuous: ‘Already 10 000 Belgians on their way to succes’. In my mind this should be: ‘Another 10 000 Belgians getting paid the wrong way’. How are we ever gonna solve our mobility and climate problems if this way of thinking stays the norm? An advertisement to be very proud Audi! It exactly puts the finger where it hurts!!
The Flemish newspaper De Standaard asked readers to send in their best and worst experiences while biking. All pictures – some of the surreal – can be found here.
