Who will buy a car as big as it? I mean, it will cost you a ton of money in fuel and finding a spot to park it will be complicated at minimun.
I’m in my 30’s and just about to get my license and first car. I’m having sticker shock as I start to calculate out how much it will cost me. Hopefully I can switch over to car sharing services as said car reaches the end of its lifetime. Most of my trips can be made by bike or transit, and for a small fraction of the price.
Can confirm, live in the US and probably 1/3 of the vehicles I see on the road are large pickup trucks that I doubt are even used to haul what they’re built for.
That GMC vehicle probably would be classified a truck outside USA/Canada/Australia. Thus requiring a license of a type mostly only pro drivers would have. Not that that fixes everything but would reduce risk (statistically).
Not sure about that.
In Europe you can drive trucks up to 3.5 T with a car license.
Taxes might reduces ownership tho.
And the price of fuel for such monsters tho
Punishing individuals for their consumption choices instead of holding corporations responsible is not a good or ethical way of combatting climate change.
Perhaps you make a point there. However, the discussion was more on traffic safety (and slightly about drivers with small members). So I do not know why you brought that up.

I never understood the “Slow Children” warning sign. It’s the fast ones you have to be concerned about. The fast ones will run out in front of you before you have a chance to react.
I’m not sure if you’re being sarcastic or not, but “slow” here means you slow down
My girlfriend bought me a shirt with this on it.
To be fair, you can make the exact same thing with a train. It comes down to not being an idiot in traffic.
Trains are not part of traffic.
And neither does a child materialize out of thin air an inch in front of a car. If it stood like a foot further, the driver could clearly see the child.
Neoliberal critique of personal consumption never stops being nonsensical.
The child standing in the blind spots of a SUV is the typical way for parents to accidentally kill their or their neighbors children
The number of people bringing red-tribe-vs-blue-tribe culture war nonsense into leftist spaces is astounding. People think leftism is just “being a really intense and edgy liberal”
It’s more humane if they die on impact rather than from inner bleeding in the hospital.
