There's been an outcry in Glasgow recently, the council 'upgraded' sachiehall st and didn't consult on the changes, no kerbs anywhere so it's been described as a deathtrap for visually impaired people as the delineation of the lanes for pedestrians and cyclists is different coloured tarmac. :unsure:
When the first person is killed the family will sue them and it will be changed.
Unfortunately predictable

They are basically to slow traffic entering the junction, provide a degree of pedestrian priority and make life a little easier for those with mobility issues.

The guy with the guide dog was a guest speaker on the course & we had to suppress sniggers as he described being towed across junctions by a kamikaze dog to a soundtrack of irate horns. He came from Coventry where there weren't so many, the courses were in Westminster which was full of them.
The poor lad must need new underpants after each dog walk.

I have absolutely no idea who is supposed to do what where, and in my experience neither do a lot of people using it, both on foot and in vehicles.
Yes I can see why.
This is some design oiks dream
If you confuse everyone they might go slower and take more care ???
Probably looks good on paper.

Drivers have been left fuming after finding out about a Highway Code violation that could land them a £5,000 fine.

Rule 94 of the code says: "At night or in poor visibility, do not use tinted glasses, lenses or visors if they restrict your vision."

It suggests that drivers should instead use their visor to try and block the sun out.

The AA states: "Vision must remain clear and sufficient light to let you see properly must get to your eyes.

"Sunglasses sold for general use can be too dark for driving in.

Changes to the Highway Code were made last week, allowing motorists in self-driving cars to watch TV.

"Plus, fashion frames could obscure your peripheral vision if they aren't the right style, so it's best to choose your shades carefully."

Drivers wearing clothing that is not appropriate and restricts manoeuvring face fines of £100 or more and three penalty points.

If taken to court these fines can increase to £5,000, with nine penalty points and can even lead to a driving ban.

Their tips for avoiding a fine include:

Discussing options for sun and glare protection with an optician.
Considering a specialist driving lens or tint.
Being aware that everyday sunglasses might not be suitable for driving.
According to rule 237 of the Highway Code, drivers should stop driving if the sun is getting in their eyes.

So, I wonder who are all these 'drivers have been left fuming'? It's just typical 'wind-up' journalism.

Of course, yes, there may well be some sunglasses that are not suitable for driving - in poor visibility or otherwise - but I think I'll remain unconcerned until after there's been a successful prosecution of someone proven to be wearing the wrong ones
