Land Rover driver astonished as he finds rude notes left on his car windscreen

Land Rover driver astonished as he finds rude notes left on his car windscreen

A Land Rover driver has spoken out after finding two offensive notes on his windscreen.

A Land Rover driver has spoken out after finding two offensive notes on his windscreen.

BMW drivers may have been named the worst on the road, but it appears there's no love lost between people and Land Rover drivers either.

One Land Rover driver in particular - Adam Chester - was in for a surprise when he returned to his vehicle parked in Harborne, Birmingham, to find a couple of notes had been left on his windscreen and wedged in one of the car's doors.

They're not quite as bad as parking tickets, but why don't you take a look for yourself:

On Friday, 7 July, Adam returned to his Land Rover to find not one, but two notes - one handwritten and the other a black and white card - attached to his vehicle.

The first read: "Do you really need a big, polluting vehicle to get around a city? Have a nice day!"

The second added: "Do you drive a Jeep, 4X4 or Range Rover in the city? You could be entitled to free penis enlargement therapy on the NHS."

A phone number was also written on the cards - although it reportedly went straight to voicemail - and there were images of the cars in question printed on too.

Someone even wrote a thoughtfully hand-written one too.

Thankfully, rather than the notes spoiling Adam's day, the 46-year-old wasn't that phased by their contents.

Adam said: "I'm all for people having an opinion and being allowed to protest.

"The oceans are rising, climate change is worrying, we have to be aware but it needs to go higher up the chain.

"Is the government doing enough?"

Let's not lie, it's quite funny.

While Adam may believe environmental activists should be looking 'higher up the chain,' a 2021 report by The Ecologist delves into the impact Land Rovers - specifically Defenders - have on the planet.

The outlet states: "The official carbon pollution figures range from 226 to 340 g CO2 /km.

"At the top of the range the SUV is pouring out pollution at over 250 percent above the EU target carbon emission level for an average car."

However, while a Land Rover - specifically the Land Rover Range Rover SVA SUV - made Forbes' 2021 list of the 13 environmentally 'meanest' cars in the US, Land Rover did manage to stay off the list in 2023.

Luckily the notes didn't really phase Adam.

Ultimately, Adam is just thankful the people who left the notes didn't cause any damage to his car.

He noted: "If there was damage to the car, it would have been a different scenario."

Although, Adam may have been one of the lucky ones to only receive the two notes and not have his car damaged.

After posting the notes to social media and questioning whether anyone else had received them, Adam was told another person had not only received the notes but had their tires' air let out.
