- Really important people: they drive.
- Poor, under funded students: they drive.
- Outside the inner city, people don't walk.
That's why were horrified to see this footage from Horfield.
Within a couple of seconds, our van encountered two pedestrians and a cyclist -with one of the pedestrians walking in the road as if they had the right to. This is not Montpelier! This is a nice fast road where people park up on the pavement to let passing traffic through. Yet today, somebody walking. Here!
We had to drive up the rest of the road in shock, until the sight of all the cars and vans up on the pavement reassured us that this was a temporary event.
