Luxury cars targeted by climate activists as they are deflating tyres to protest over carbon emissions

Another climate group called Tyred of SUVs have been targeting “gas guzzling luxury cars” which are parked on streets.

The climate activists are deflating tyres of SUVs in Glasgow to raise awareness of carbon emissions.

Once the tyres have been deflated the activists place a “climate violation” flyer on the windscreens which reads, “Your SUV contributes to the second biggest cause of carbon emissions rises in the last decade.

“This is why we have disarmed your car by deflating one or more of its tyres.”

It added, “Action is required from you: Go small. Go public transport.”

A spokesperson for Tyred of SUVs said, “If 4×4 drivers were a nation, they’d be the 7th biggest polluters on the planet (Source: International Energy Agency).

“If the 1% won’t take responsibility for the climate destruction they wreak, we’ll make them.”

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said, “We are aware of these incidents and there will be increased patrols in the area to provide reassurance to local residents.”
