Driving our van around Bristol we've noticed that the biggest problem for school run mums is pesky cyclists jumping red lights and riding on pavements.
We're really pleased therefore, that the extension to St John's Primary School, using Redland Police Station as an Annex will stamp out these tax dodgers - well at least in one direction.
Any foolish cyclists that remain after these proposals are given planning permission will be forced to go up a very steep hill instead (that'll teach them), or negotiate some difficult right turns where we expect they will be knocked off their bikes. The exact proposals are below, but the planning application can also be can be viewed online

Good heavens. In the unlikely event of this splendid plan being approved, we can at least be content that the inevitable failure to enforce any of the cunningly obscure restrictions will be one more victory for citizen anarchy on Bristol's roads.
On a serious note this proposal looks like a fairly primitive message that children should not cycle to school.
Perhaps it would be worth considering the closure of some of those streets to motor vehicles during school arrival and departure times?
