Why Do So Many Motorists Feel Persecuted When In Reality They Rule The World? – forbes.com
For some newspapers, the imposition of speeding fines is a “war on the motorist.” The latest front in this supposed war is led by a group not usually noted for radical anti-car tendencies.
According to the headline on a double-page spread in yesterday’s Daily Telegraph the “elite are determined to kill off the car.”
Folks from the elite tend to be Tesla and Lamborghini owners, so it’s a strange claim for the Telegraph to make. What is the newspaper basing its claim on and is the car really as endangered as the giant panda or the black Rhino?
The claim, it turns out, is based on “increasing insurance premiums, new city charging zones and pollution-busting road restrictions.”
