When will France ban cars?

As an outsider looking at what has happened in France, it amazes me that the French haven't banned automobiles yet. We see countless deaths per year as a result of cars, and the mass car accident that happened today is just another example of death by car. I mean how stupid and arrogant are they. They seem so proud of their cars and they cling to them with such patriotism.

    • More like idiot people using them.

    • Actually car deaths are close to double deaths from guns in the USA each year and serious car injuries that require hospitalization are around 2.3 million a year.

    • But you know, the savages who did that in France *still* had access to guns, and were free to rampage on a disarmed populace...

    • Cars are far more dangerous! That why I think it is so outrageous that the French cling to them so patriotically. They deserve international scorn for not listening to the rest of the world that has to constantly tell them how reckless their car policies are...

    • Staying in character! :D

    • Rationing speed will never work. We need to ban all vehicles that can travel of 2 mph. I know you're saying to yourself, how will you ever hunt a deer with a car that can only go 2 mph, but if you wedge their neck under the tire first it is possible.

    • Look man, this is the last post I'm gonna make here. I'm not mad, haven't been mad, and won't get mad.

      I think most of us here understand the point you're attempting to make with satire. However, your weak suck attempt at humor is totally lame and distasteful. I know you think you're quite bright, but in reality you've proven yourself to be very dim.

      As a Constitutionalist, I not only support the Second Amendment, but the entire Bill Of Rights. That guarantees you the Right to speak as stupidly as you choose to act. To post complete and utter fucktardery to your simple-minded heart's content.

      Unfortunately, it's Americans like you that make the rest of us Constitutionalists appear to others as hairy, small-brained neanderthals for supporting the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. You're not helping the cause of Liberty by taking a tragedy that includes innocent children being murdered, and attempting to make a political point with bad jokes.

      Mad? Hardly. Sad? a bit.

      Adios bro.

  • You know what's funny about this question? While I understand that you're a gun nut and just trying to be sarcastic, as a conservative American who probably also gets a hard-on for cars, it will surprise you to hear that I would actually support such an idea.
    Granted, I wouldn't ban all cars. Fire trucks and ambulances and police cars should still be allowed to drive around. And I also don't mind cars driving on highways. However, I do support car-free cities and towns 100%. I'm sick of people driving cars into crowds of people but I'm also sick of lazy people driving to work or shopping and fucking upon the planet. Personally, I don't have a driver's license and I do 90% of my mobility by bike (rest is by public transportation). I go shopping by bike, I go to the train station by bike, I go to the movies by bike, I go to my friends' places by bike etc.. The world would be better if more people lived this way and dodged their stupid cars.

    • When parking gets expensive enough, and congestion gets bad enough (e. g., NYC), this pretty much accomplishes itself. There's no need to legislate it.

      I mean... You *do* realize that, if you did something like this, the very first thing that would happen would be that delivery companies would start extorting the shit out of everyone in the city for "hauling" anything weighing more than 40 or 50 pounds. You know that, right?

    • As to your supermarket pitch, you sound like a ineffective sales representative. If people want to shop at supermarkets that is fine, but it is also fine if they want to raise their own livestock on their own land or leased land. It is also fine to fish or hunt for meat so long as they are licensed within the state they are hunting and abide by the rules and hunting seasons.

      As to you're deluded view of killing poor animals in the wild, well your farms and supermarkets that you feel people should depend on have fractured habitat all over the country. This has lead to reduced ranges for top predators and has thrown the natural balance off in many ecosystems. This means that you end up with an overpopulation of certain animals, which can lead to destruction of support species, disease outbreaks, huge swings in population and genetic diversity. This instability can eventually lead to ecosystem collapse and extinction of certain species if allowed to it's course. If humans didn't impact

    • the land so drastically then our ecosystems would be more balanced. But the fact is that we have, and as a band aid hunting certain amounts of game within a population helps to simulate the role of top predators in an ecosystem. Hunting actually helps to stabilize the problem created by the farms and wal-marts that serve up your dinner for you.

  • If you saw what happens in Brazil you'd change your mind. Traffic here is a slaughter house. More people die here because of car accidents than the victims of Middle Eastern war (statistically speaking).

    A guy I know, for example, died in an accident just a week ago. Every day we hear news of crashes everywhere and many of them die. It's really an adventure to drive on our roads, it can de deadly.

  • This is a troll thread designed to draw some parallel between cars and guns because obviously cars are designed to kill, have as little economic function as guns and you are just allowed to drive them without passing any sort of test, right?
