Driveways of Shame

Among the infinite freedoms allowed Americans is the right to be a selfish boor.

And that’s how I characterize most owners of SUVs. Unless you’re driving car pool for Catholic school, hauling cattle feed across your farm’s fields, or engaging in some other essential task that contributes to the common good of our great land, your gluttonous choice is inexcusable.

I hold these truths to be self-evident. SUVs are safety hazards, make driving difficult for others, and spoil the environment, all while increasing our nation’s oil dependency. Slapping a magnetic I Support Our Troops ribbon on your gas guzzler doesn’t make you any less un-American or anti-Earth.

Almost half the vehicles in my neighborhood are SUVs. Pictured is a typical driveway scene.
