SUVs Outta Here


| March/April 2002

A culture-jamming group in Brooklyn has come up with a novel way of shaming SUV drivers: restrict their parking. Park Slope Public Works produces "No SUV Parking" signs and surreptitiously posts them on blocks where the gas-guzzling vehicles are parked. The activists then "ticket" the offenders with authentic-looking parking tickets that educate the drivers about the environmental costs of their vehicles.
