Is it Time for Stage 4 Vehicle Restrictions?

Today, the first rain in a while is falling, providing some much needed moisture to the ground, water to our reservoirs, and hopefully helping extinguish or control some of the wildfires burning across the Province of British Columbia. Every summer increasing levels of water use restrictions are put in place to preserve our water supply, and with climate change taking effect, it appears that is only going to get worse, in BC at least, Scotland might still be ok. Our roads are a finite resource just like our water supply. Is it time to start thinking about vehicle restrictions like we do water restrictions? The graphic above may be somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but maybe its time to start thinking along these lines…
