ban SUVs, not pocket bikes


Pocket bikes or mini motos are being banned in communities across America. It’s evident how they are dangerous, because they are so low to the ground, motorists may not see them. It shows how big our traveling has got in America—in a very literal sense.

Other countries have such a wonderful bicycle culture, those pocket bikes would fit in just fine. How about we ban all those monster SUVs instead?

Yes!! Ban SUVs!! I’m all for banning those gas guzzlers! I’m also for banning it because when people learn to drive, they learn in cars, not SUVs. Then they go out and buy an SUV and think they can drive it just like the drive a car, which simply isn’t that case. I love the Minis and the Pocket bikes and Vespa scooters and all those things. Got a hundred kids? Buy a station wagon!!

I hate SUVs. They are obnoxious in every possible way. They use gas obnoxiously. Their prescense on the road is obnoxious. I hate not being able to see what’s happening further down the road when an SUV is in front of me. And then you see some obnoxious person trying to back into a parking space with an SUV which can take forever. And then there’s the SUV driver who has no regards for the yellow (or white) painted stripes in a parking lot. But what really, really ticks me off the most about SUVs is ATM machines. Banks are now placing ATM machines much higher off the ground to accomodate all the SUV drivers. Do banks really think there are more SUV drivers than non-SUV drivers? That really gets me upset.

Careful about how you categorize SUVs. They aren’t all bad, and all drivers aren’t irresponsible. It’s more of the driver’s incompetence than the vehicle.

If you arrange the letters in “Sports Utility Vehicle” you also get: * Cause of Iraqi War * Selfish Ignornant American * Dead Citizens of Planet Earth * Ignorance is Bliss * Food for Oil Program * Every Man for Himself * Don’t Tell Me What I Can and What I Cannot Drive … and many many more

“Careful about how you categorize SUVs. They aren’t all bad, and all drivers aren’t irresponsible. It’s more of the driver’s incompetence than the vehicle.” -SW33T ALL SUVs are the cause for the ATM machines being placed higher so the rest of us in responsible cars have to suffer. ALL SUVs make it impossible to view the road ahead for those of us in responsible cars.
