Degonfleurs are French eco-activists who let down the tyres of urban SUVs in order to harass their owners. The great thing about this is that they aren't committing any crime as they don't damage anything. The SUV people seem to be on the back foot a bit - all they offered by way of objection in the report I heard was that the practice was dangerous - which it seems not to be since the eco guys let down two tyres at a time (so that the car is completely immobilised) and put a big abusive message on the windscreen.

One for a Clarkson episode, methinks.

I remember reading that those bull-bars which are often found on this kind of vehicle are responsible for x number of deaths per year. Always winds me up when I see them now.

Will check out figures when I return from holidays,
