Eight weeks of works costing £120,000 are under way in the Stokes Croft area of Bristol aimed at improving safety for people walking and cycling.
Maybe if Bristol's arrogant "rules-don't-apply-to-me" cycling contingent actually fucking stopped at the red traffic lights in Stokes Croft then they would be safer - this area is well known for people shooting through red lights.
Oh, but of course it's all the car's fault:
Changes are being put in place banning drivers from turning left into City Road or right from Jamaica Street.
A few corrections are needed:
"The scheme is designed to resolve the safety issues and ensure a smoother journey for all."Make that "..ensure a smoother journey for all cyclists."
Alterations will be made to traffic lights at both Jamaica Street and City Road to help reduce congestion.Make that "Alterations will be made to traffic lights at both Jamaica Street and City Road to help increase congestion in order to garner public and media support for the planned congestion charge."
However, if they are telling the truth about the lights, and the planned alterations will reduce congestion, does that mean that the current traffic light timings are deliberately set to increase congestion?
Which is it, BCC?
