The image of limousine services is that they’re big gas-guzzlers. While they might be all comfort and frills on the inside, from the outside they’re huge, imposing monsters designed to throw off an aura of disdain for those unfortunate enough to be on the sidewalk as they motor past.
Of course, that’s a vastly unfair picture to paint. Most charter car services are very mindful of the impact they have on the cities in which they operate. Not just in terms of the road space they occupy, but the air pollution that their huge gas engines put out as well.
