The Tyre Extinguishers, an environmental activist group, claimed on Twitter that the team of climate activists have deflated around 900 SUVs. Tyre Extinguishers have let down the tyres of SUVs in London, Bristol and Brighton, The Telegraph reported.

On Twitter, the activists have been repeatedly sharing images of their act wherein they click themselves in action while deflating the tyres, and then leave a note stating the environmental concerns. ""SUVs are unnecessary luxury goods for which the sole purpose of ownership in a city is pure vanity," the group tweeted while mentioning their aim to make regions SUV-free.

"We're taking this action because governments and politicians have failed to protect us from these huge vehicles," the group says on its website, where they add, "Politely asking and protesting for these things has failed," PEOPLE quoted the activists as they learned that the media outlet's editor got subjected to the activist's action. Reportedly, PEOPLE Food Editor Ana Calderone's car was among those hit in N.Y.C. Calderone.
