- Bicycle Culture by Design: Motorist Ticketed - Motorist Stupid

There’s a campaign at the moment in conjunction with kids going back to school, mentioned in the previous post. I was pleased to see our local officer outside Felix’s classroom window ticketed an illegally parked car.

Yesterday the roundabout right by the school had a new feature. Nobody knows how but this motorist A. didn't see the roundabout and B. somehow managed to force his BMW up over the large rocks to rest in the middle of the island, somehow missing the tree.
