# fair enough.
I live here. And to be honest I won't even take the beemer into london let alone a 4x4.

# Yep
4x4 country, rural roads at the very least are a bit wonky, I have experienced a ditch in Wales coming off a 750cc bike

But this issue really erks me; i'm not some environmental nutter, it just completely stuns me how selfish certain elements of middle-class society can be with their choice of urban vehicle. The school run? 4x4's basically kill kids forwards at least at 25mph, and yet they feel safer. Reeks of selfish wanker to me.

# I like being up higher.
That said, I don't understand the school run at all.

On the few occasions that I have used the car (because I am either late coming back from somewhere or going straight to somewhere from school) I find it takes longer than walking because there are so many Chelsea tractors blocking the roads.
