Satire and parody can do a good job of shining light on things taken for granted.

So often drivers in Adelaide complain about the CBD traffic that it is taken for granted that more needs to be done for road users in the CBD, without it being considered that the reason for the problem is that it is so easy to drive into and park in the CBD.

Sorry I don't understand, do you mean that road users want more carparks in the city?

Do you think it's a good idea then?

Not at all a good idea. CBD road traffic is about as perfect an example of induced demand you can get. The easier it is made to drive into and through the CBD the more people will do it.

What about if we could also have a double use for the carparklands, like the world's biggest drive in cinema? 8)
*Looks at Dyson Airblade Factory* "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure"

The easier it is, the harder it is. The harder it is, the easier it is.

Makes sense to me.

Drive In Cinemas are so underrated. If done with the right marketting, they could honestly turn out fantastic. If they replaced that pesky Memorial Torrens Parade Ground with a Drive-in Cinema, big bucks would come.
