There was a time when I planned to make a bid for one of these, but then I was able to build my own place for a bike so I dropped the idea. Now I wonder whether there is a case for providing at least one in most substantial streets, partly to remind people that severe climate change is a likely outcome if people worldwide don't reduce their emissions.

On the other hand you couldn't say that they add something to the street scene ................ but then neither do continuous lines of variously parked cars.

Report highlights failings in London road traffic justice

RoadPeace, the national charity for road crash victims, has today published a review looking at traffic law enforcement across London. Based on the latest statistics from 2017, the findings have led the charity to call for improved transparency and accountability of the Metropolitan Police, to understand the strategy it is deploying to tackle road danger. London should be leading the way when it comes to traffic law enforcement, and RoadPeace’s review indicates that enforcement is not only inconsistent and infrequent across the capital, but doesn’t compare well nationally either.
