Being a pedestrian in Brussels is infuriating. The combination of constantly having to dodge dog poo and dangerously driven tax free company cars makes me feel that instead of mouthing swear words at SUV drivers I need actual signs in multiple languages!

I was cycling with my 6 year old the other day, and this is the invention she came up with! (I am always telling her that when she grows up there will be no cars, and she is cool with it.)

I just finished reading ‘Prosperity without Growth: Foundations for the Economy of Tomorrow’ by Tim Jackson, which I highly recommend, and it inspired this cartoon.
