WTF, enforcing a yellow line for 1/2 hour in the middle of the night... How is that helping traffic flow?

Nothing new about Ilford Lane, the CEO's hide around the corner and pounce if you dare dive into a shop for 30 seconds!

My personal beef at the moment however is all over London at the moment the bus lane signs are being 'spun' so you cannot see them as you approach, typically it is the time ones. Lambeth and Tower Hamlets seem the most prolific at it.

More beef about spun bus lane signs... Homerton Road both ways, every sign is turned so you cannot see them on the carriageway - As these are are bus, cycle, taxi lanes only bikers beware!

  • Veni, Vidi, $chunti. I came, I saw, I assisted.
I've often wondered what Trouserfire means when he bangs on about "hard working parking managers". I know now because the one in that film was working very hard to maintain illegal ticket targets.

Appealing to the council is like playing chess with a pigeon. You might be a chess grand master but the pigeon will always knock all the pieces over, shit on the board and then strut around triumphantly.
