Last summer, as the cycle scheme was just coming to a formal close, small adverts could be seen in Bristol, testing the water and gauging the reaction to the apparent increase in cycle use. In order to keep a low profile, pop-up vehicles like CT04FMP would park up on the grass between Eastgate Road and Muller Road. Waiting patiently for a newly converted cyclist who might sell their old car to them.
Recently, however, the adverts have become larger.
They are still located out of the way of motorists, though, as they can often be seen on the double yellows in Stokes Croft. EJ55RCY illustrates their concern not to use up valuable parking spaces for those that still own cars.
Which makes us wonder whether, with the bigger presence, the cars4cash unit is:
A) doing well in acquiring cars for cash
B) aiming to get bigger cars for cash
C) a front for the squatting fraternity in the Emporium or Free Shop.
After all, there's plenty of space for a few mattresses in the back of that lorry. And a few bikes, too.
