The Gym Pie Who Rowed on Dec 17, 2023:
Brisbane roads are the worst planning in any city I've ever seen.

They ripped up the trams to build more roads.

People spend more money on cars than anything. Giant, big cars not needed in a city.

Brisbane is full of derros who think driving everywhere means they are kings.

Brisbane roads are to full mate!

The CBD area parking is more expensive than Monaco! But without the glamour of Monaco. Just fat people walking around.

The CBD area is in a small triangulated area called "The Central Business District". One side has hills and narrow windy roads. The other sides are water, called the Brisbane River. There are a few places you can get in and out.

Brisbane people are too dumb to realise they are living in a giant car park and construction site.
