Re better cycle lanes, I think we all know of silly ones. In my city, they built a relativley long one at considerable expense, unfortunately, it was fairly narrow with lamp-posts in the middle - cyclists had to swerve either into pedestrians or into a dual carriageway to avoid them.

Another one, ban parents from parking in cycle lanes outside schools when they go to pick their kids up.

The school run is a huge problem everywhere it seems. Caused by taking away funding for school buses/coaches and allowing parents choice of any schools, not just those within walking distance of your house....

The problem has been caused by government policy, and now they want to charge us for the privilage!

Can you not still get free bus passes for schoolchildren living over 3 miles away from the school. I'm sure this is still available as an occasional but regular local news item is '13 year old Jonny lives 2.9 miles way from school and has to walk each day etc'.

Not in Plymouth you can't Trendell!

Son goes to secondary school nearly 5 miles away and it costs us a tenner a week. The local school is an arts specialist college, which doesn't even offer seperate sciences at GCSE, while the one he goes to is specialist maths and science.

At primary school, parents park up to half an hour before school finishes, to save having to walk more than 10 yards. I suggested to 1 mum she could park outside my house and walk, but she told me it was too far to walk! We, naturally take our private helicopter to and from school!

Love the idea about activated mines in yellow junctions.
