The cotham hill/Abbotsford road junction is very popular with shoppers, hence the dedicated one-hour-only shopping areas on one side of the road. Of course, if you want to go to a shop on the other side of the road, they are no, you have to improvise, as the minivan GU04HUH appears to be doing.
Given the traffic volume, it is worrying to see a pedestrian using a phone while crossing the road, as they are clearly not paying attention to what is happening around them.
Can she not see how dangerous it is? How cars turning left into this road would have to swerve round the parked car FG08KGU without warning. Pedestrians like this need to go on a safe-walking course before they should be allowed onto our streets. This could be one of the campaign points of the Association of British Drivers: make all pedestrians pay a walking tax proportional to the number of miles they walk a year. Only if pedestrians pay for the upkeep of the roads should they be allowed to get in the way of tax-paying cars.
