HTF are you supposed to tow a 6m+ RIB using a saloon car I ask you
Yes, but unfortunately the fact of the matter is that 98% of them tow nothing, never go off-road and cause chaos in town centres and outside schools, particularly if driven by women. They are also frequently driven at slow speeds on B-roads because they handle like stuck pigs and generally get in the way of everyone else who can't see past them to overtake. Much as I adore my Range Rover I can nevertheless totally understand why they irritate so many other people. On the other hand, I'd be even more tolerant of the anti-4x4 brigade if they kicked up the same fuss about the impact that discount airline operators like Ryanair and the rest of them have on the environment. They don't of course because the environment isn't actually as important to them as saving a few quid on their tedious two week holiday in the Med.
