But, no, that does not mean that I want more and more highways to be built everywhere, or that against introducing a speed limit on German Autobahns.

These are two reasons why I deliberately chose not to join the ADAC (which is the club [of any kind] in Germany with the most members), as I personally don’t like their lobbying. So I was very grateful when Christian pointed out to me that there are also alternatives. Eventually, I joined the VCS which is an alternative automobile club (offering an emergency pickup service) in Switzerland.

In fact, the German car manufactures were just awarded the “Worst EU Lobbying Award 2007“! Congratulations!

Wouldn’t the world be a horribly dull and boring place without all the car, oil and gun lobbyists?
