Wow, Do you have a fucking great chip on your shoulder or what!
I have seen some rants before, including some of mine, but yours has as much logic to it as the Flat Earth Society proponents.
You've somehow managed to take a discussion on disabled parking and in one quick bound, take it to your own personal hatred of, it seems, just about anything you don't personally agree with - and also managed to denigrate every person out there who might aspire to either a car with a bit more room for whatever reason, or something with a little power because you know, they actually enjoy driving.
A large vehicle or more power does NOT equate with irresponsible hooniness (or is that hoonism?)
Most people of my acquaintance, admittedly not a large scientific survey, usually acquire larger or more powerful vehicles simply because they've decided that it gives them a bit more comfort when driving.
Personally, when returning from the UK to NZ I bought a second hand (2001) Audi Quattro 2.8 V6 Tiptronic wagon because I got it a good price, it gave me room in the back to load stuff into for my landscaping projects, not to mention taking the luggage of our overseas visitors, and it was a cut above what I would normally buy, and I enjoy driving it, and being Quattro, it's far safer than your silly little fart boxes. First rule of not having accidents is have a vehicle which allows you to avoid getting in that sort of position in the first place.
Now as age has crept up on me, (how did that happen) it's a bit low to the ground to comfortably get in and out of, so despite disliking SUVs mainly for the reasons you quote, I might very well have to resort to one. Not one of the huuuge monstrosities like a Jeep Cherokee or other 'designed for the U.S. market' type SUV but something that still has the room I am looking for, with a bit of power and comfort but of a more modest size and a damn sight easier to enter and exit.
BTW, for the month or two before having both my hips replaced, and walking was extremely painful and I was still working, I had the NZ equivalent of a disabled parking badge, and I made full use of it, and also the period following the operation, probably about a month, so maybe 3 months in all.
Once I was walking OK again, fairly quickly for a double hip op, it must be said, as the pass was still valid I used it then as well, but feeling 'slightly' guilty I used to limp away from the car, until I was out of sight. I still couldn't walk that far in one go, so I didn't feel too guilty about it.
A niggling pain in the groin left over from that op done in 2004, doesn't make entrance and egress from a smaller car easy, hence the larger car.
