The debate with Councillor Whitehead and the tendency of suburban councillors to micromanage street design in the lower city wards (especially wards 1 and 2), while calming their streets as they see fit, makes me think we need another term:

OIOPBY

Only In Other People's Back Yard's

OIOPY's think that street designs (or pollution levels) they would never tolerate on the street where they live are absolutely necessary on streets in distant neighbourhoods they drive through ... and that sometimes needing to drive through a neighbourhood should give them a veto of the residents who actually live there on what the neighbourhood should be like.
