    No limits on illegal immigrants, but an SUV ban, that's OK!

    I kinda wonder if the driver was an immigrant. The reasoning of some people in government just amazes me. Some have undoubtably reached total stupidity saturation. Maybe all the German people should be required to drive Volkswagon beetles. Sorry, no Porsches allowed off the Autobahn.

    Ox carts are much safer than SUVs.

    I always thought a scoop or cattle guard on the front of a vehicle was one of the most practical upgrades.

    As the wise man once remarked, "The best way to stop innocents from dying in DUI incidents is to get all the sober drivers off the streets."

    At least that is the way I seem to remember it.

    From the article, all I can say is bless their hearts. National law to enforce size limits. Next they will be like China and ban how many children you can have.

    Wonder where a school bus will fit in this, they are indeed larger than a SUV!


    A senior Green Party MP on Monday called for a nationwide ban on large SUVs in city centres amid fears the heavy vehicles are endangering lives on Germany’s crowded streets.“We need an upper limit for large SUVs in the inner cities,” Oliver Krischer told Tagesspiegel newspaper. “Best would be a national law that allows local authorities to enforce size limits.”

    Trust God.

    What would happen if you put the same amount of trust in God that you do in the brakes on what your driving on the highways?

    Think about it.

    I expected this to be about the armored vehicles cartels are running around in. Wrong.

    I don't train to fight some street urchin, I train to fight the evil version of myself, and that person scares me, because I know the time I put into my training on how to beat him.

    OK FOLKS: People here are always saying that they should ban cars, not guns, because cars are responsible for deaths than guns.

    Now one city in Germany has banned one kind of car just from their downtown area - and you are upset?

    This is doublethink.

    They call a Porsche Macan a large SUV?
