The U.K.-based group The Alliance Against Urban 4×4’s is taking a stand against superfluous sports utility vehicles. Their blog, photos, demonstrations, and videos share a quirky sense of humor but take pollution seriously. The Alliance reveals the dangers and environmental damage of 4×4 vehicles, and their sheer ridiculousness—especially on crowded, narrow city roads, and their popularity in a time of climate change and ecological crisis.
In the video below, after the jump, The Alliance stages a street-side “mudwash,” which they offer free of charge to drivers of 4×4s, so that their cars might look more “authentic,” as though they’ve spend the day off-roading in the wilderness.
Another video shows Alliance members issuing pseudo parking tickets to 4×4-driving offenders.
The Alliance also offers this clip, which reveals the perils of urban driving, and the on-road obstacles that these monster vehicles must overcome.
