To Santa: no SUV for me, thanks


As Europe slowly but surely picks up on the SUV rage (or 4x4 as we like to call them here), Malcolm Gladwell's Big and Bad article gives insight into what these vehicles actually are and what they often mean to people. It could be a bit funny, but when you think about the environmental and safety consequences it's not.

Me, I loved driving a big four-wheel drive around Weipa last summer, and we really needed it there. But, driving one alone in your suit in the city? Come on, let's be a bit smarter. Or ride a bike.
