Where Do You Stand On SUVs?
Students at the University of Georgia clearly like their cars big. The ubiquitous SUVs have "more room for a party" and are "great for road trips." Yet anti-SUV sentiment has increased, spawning distressed bikers to angry ecoterrorists, who seem recently to have destroyed the cars at a campus fraternity in protest. "I think it totally influences my vote," says one student. "I'm all for alternative ways to find fuel or to create new things that don't run off oil." Some budding planners on campus see the problem as automobiles in their entirety. "I personally feel like the alternative fuel vehicle is a patch, a Band Aid solution to a larger problem," says a critical student. "It is the automobile itself that creates mobility and many of the social inequities we have in the United States."
