Why Change A Traffic Light Sequence When You Can Clutter A Street??? (Or Using A Pair Of /bollards In A Dangerous Manner)
Last November I wrote to my local City Councillor about a minor problem I had.

I say "minor problem" but it was slightly more serious than that - to the point where I feel like I am taking my life into my hands as a result of merely walking along a stretch of pavement.  I have almost been run over by some impatient idiots mounting the pavement as they undertake a row of traffic to beat the lights.

Now - when I complained to my Councillor I had a very simple solution in mind - retime the signals and free the trafficjam.

I recieved an email last night which shocked me - as well as worrying me greatly.

Instead of simply retiming the signals the Highways Dept or Planning Dept have decided in their wisdom to install two bollards in the pavement.  This is apparently to stop the traffic mounting the pavement.

Luckily the Councillor agreed with me that visually impaired people may have a problem with this.  I fired off an email to the Councillor stating my exact objections to that idea (along with reasons).

I look forward to finding out which other crazy scheme they come up with.
