Abstract

It has become the modern urban stereotype of our times: the mum dropping off her child to school on a three-mile round trip in a rolling two-tonne battlewagon designed to cross the sand dunes of Namibia or the forest tracks of the Amazonian jungle. We are incensed, outraged at this blatantly anti-social act by somebody who clearly puts the safety and comfort of herself and her child above any consideration of her actions on collective community welfare or the viability of the planet. In North America, and now here in the UK, activists are campaigning against the 4x4 with increasingly militant and interventionist strategies. It is a campaign that is at best misguided and illogical, and at worst downright counter-productive.
