Big Car Equals Arrogance

In Czechs on October 27, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka

There are many things that are nation-specific about Czechs. One of them is the behavior of a certain group of people who own big cars.

Downtown Brno is one big pedestrian zone that is restricted to general traffic. There are many drivers who ignore this rule and drive through and park there. A quick “research” that I did yesterday showed that out of 15 cars that were parked in the pedestrian zone without permit 10 cost more than 1 million, and two cost even more. One Porsche Cayenne was parked on a bus stop “bay”, while the owner was in the nearby travel agency.

I have never seen a middle-age-average-guy’s car in the historical center of Brno in places it is not supposed to be parked out. Obviously the more average as a citizen you are, the more social control abilities you possess in the Czech Republic.

It is perfectly normal to buy a two million Porsche Cayenne. It does not matter whether the owner works 16 hours a day or whether his business is somewhat illegal. What does matter is what he or she doeswith the car. Eight out of ten Czechs use it to tell the world that having it means having privileges. And they love to test the boundaries.
