Envirocars – doing their bit to damage the planet!

30 Aug

Continuing the recent theme of highlighting companies that park their vehicles in a manner that make a mockery of their company values, here a photo of a vehicle belonging to ‘Envirocars’, a new local taxi company with a strong environmental theme parked needlessly across a verge. Every car is plastered with ‘green’ messages including one that claims ‘all emissions offset by tree planting‘ which is good, but it does mean that they are going to need to a broad range of environmental policies to avoid criticism, for example to not parking on the verges. I phoned the company and I was put through to someone who listened considerately and said they would follow it up with the driver. I would love to report at some time in the future that they put effective policies around verge and pavement parking into place so this will never happen again!

Environmentaly friendly? Hmmm….

 

Envirocars – destroying verges

 

No need to be parked on the verge at all.

    This is something that really bugs me. Okay, it’s not part of the pavement that anyone is actually going to walk on but this bit of greenery is provided for everyone to enjoy, to make the roadside look more pleasant. Planting a bloody car on it is not a pleasant sight and the end result is something ugly, a dust bowl in dry weather and a muddy hole in wet.

    Anyway, that road looks more than wide enough for the vehicle to be parked fully on it so why does the driver think they need to be off road?

      Maybe because its near a corner? Where it shouldn’t be anyway…

        I think it is just because motorists think it is considerate to park on the grass to avoid inconveniencing other motorists. The same justification is given for parking on pavements. The fact that this damages grass and inconveniences pedestrians doesn’t seem to figure in the logic.
