Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
and that's with billions per annum in subsidies :-)

btw, heavy vehicles prematurely age and stress roadbed and tarmac finish.  I would bet the increasing SUV count is raising road repair burden.  ironically in many residential n'hoods there is signage prohibiting vehicles over three tons.  however, no one bothers to enforce this law since it would prevent yuppies from driving their urban assault fantasy vehicles to their 3000 sq ft suburban ranch homes.  but don't get me started...

btw, I don't call it 'road rage'.  I call it like I see it -- Traffic Tantrum.  Warning:  Spoilt Brat Behind Wheel.

The difference between theory and practise in practise ...
