It’s all happened in less than a month and is making a big impact – but not in a good way. So far the vandalism has cost an estimated £80,000 in damages. An unnamed member of the group was interviewed by a local newspaper and had this to say about the attacks:
“These vehicles are totally unsuitable for the city, they’re dangerous, polluting and an unnecessary status symbol. They should not be on our city roads.”
Even though we can all admit gas-guzzlers aren’t the ideal vehicle to be driving, isn’t slashing tires taking it a step too far?
