Also not The Onion
From today’s New York Post:
“These terrorists, if they don’t beat us with bombs, they’ll beat us with the traffic,” griped one Audi driver stuck at a checkpoint south of Central Park yesterday. “If I had known Seventh Avenue had this much traffic, I would have bought a Prius.”
Yes, the driver is griping about the amount of gas he’s wasting idling in gridlock, but it does seem obvious to all but car owners: switching from an Audi to a Prius, or even an automobile that runs on happy thoughts, is not likely to change the number of vehicles clogging our city’s streets.
If you really want to stick it to these terrorists, ditch your car altogether.
