Stop Big Cars For Small People

This picture comes from a friend’s blog, to be printed out and placed in the windshield of any 4×4 or other big tractor-type of driving status symbol. Activism can be fun and light-hearted!

  1. Why should it be a 4×4 though? There are more than enough big 4×4s that can easily hit 30mpg (BMW X5, Mercedes ML, Audi Q7, Range Rover) and more than enough executive cars (BMW M5, 550i, 540i, Mercedes E550, Audi A6 4.2, S6) that couldn’t if they tried, so why blame the most obvious vehicle because of its shape?

  2. Well observed, but you’re missing the point though… 4×4 doesn’t just stand for 4×4 but for all big and polluting cars you just mentioned. It’s grown out to become a symbol of unnecessarily big cars stereotypically driven by a single person. It’s not about one or two types of cars, it’s about criticising a trend!
