An anti-SUV group has slashed the tyres of “at least 60 vehicles” at a Jaguar dealership in the United Kingdom in response to a recent traffic accident that killed two children.
Known worldwide as ‘The Tyre Extinguishers’, or TX, the group’s purpose is to make it virtually impossible for people to own SUVs in urban areas in the name of protecting the climate and public safety.
Its latest act of defiance took place at a Jaguar dealership in Exeter where two members slashed the tyres of “at least 60” Land Rover and Range Rover vehicles.
Footage of the incident was subsequently uploaded to X (formerly Twitter) on TX’s account which notes that it isn’t affiliated with the vandals but simply publishes their acts. However, it does take responsibility for the “tyre destruction”.
The aforementioned models were specifically targeted as a Land Rover was involved in an accident that killed two eight-year-old girls in Wimbledon in July.
Slashing the tyres of other people’s vehicles is undoubtedly an unproductive and counter-intuitive method of achieving the anti-SUV group’s wider goals of protecting the climate as they will all be replaced anyway, ultimately creating more CO2.
