How did we get here?


Pretty obvious really. Frustrated drivers fed up with sitting in a jam for the Galleries..er.., sorry..that should be The Mall, can use the red asphalt escape lane for convenience. Just ignore the signs.

Took me a couple of seconds to ralise they wern't on the wrong side of the road.

Isn't that the motorised version of pavement cacling? Call the papers quick!

Thanks for the comment. It is the car version of pavement cycling, but neither the council, law enforcement, the bristol media (all owned by one pro-car media group)give a damn what drivers do. Neither do the drivers themselves, many of who I see taking short cuts even through pedestrian zones.

No I saw the motorised version of pavement cycling today in Whitehouse Lane, but I was too slow to get a video.

It was literally pavement driving. I kid ye not a Ford Focus driving along the pavement for about 30m at about 20mph because it couldn't be bothered to wait for oncoming vehicles to pass. And I mean the whole pavement. My jaw dropped.
