Description

Shows two men standing near a garage. There are seven Rolls Royces lined up in the garage and one of the men is boasting that he now has one car for every sticker in the week. Refers to the oil crisis around 1980 and the Government's introduction of 'Carless days' to reduce petrol use.

Under the 'carless days' scheme, each car owner was rationed to using his or her car for six days a week. Each car bore a sticker with the name of a day of the week on it, the day being nominated by the car owner. On that day, the car was not to be used, in order to conserve petrol and reduce the amount the country was spending on petrol imports. Owners of more than one car were therefore in an advangtageous position.
