In which we explore the options for getting round Bristol (*), and the consequences of those decisions.

Chris has told me he parks here to calm the traffic. I can agree with the rationale, given the timing of the lights in Stokes Croft, which seem to encourage a high-speed getaway when they finally change. Jamaica Street is flat and straight, so 50mph is the obvious goal here after all.If you're unlucky enough to be a cyclist that has actually made it to the ASL you'll invariably be hooted as someone important rushes to get to the next set of lights to wait for another green light.Of course, if Chris parked in the middle of the road, on the dashed white lines, instead of on the double yellows a different set of rules would apply, and he'd only be bothered by the police, not by pesky traffic wardens.
Rubbish, he parks there because it is outside his shop.
he parks there because it is outside his shop, not for the consideration of other road users.
OK, fair play.
