    The concept behind the façade is truly fascinating

  • Comment on: Profession reacts: make London safer for cyclists

    Living in Central London, I have seen countless incidents of both cyclist and driver irresponsibility at notorious blackspots. I am surprised that only 5 cyclists have been killed this year.

    I really want to support the rights of cyclists to a safer environment, but my empathies have been significantly challenged by my experiences as a pedestrian walking along the canal path from Hackney to City Road or Angel. Many cyclists seem to feel they have some exclusive ownership of this as a race track, and treat pedestrians the way, I suspect, they feel drivers treat them. A kind of victim-turned-bully mentality.

    Yes there are many improvements that need to be made to road planning, but it is the aggressive (as opposed to decisive), boorish or stupid attitudes of both drivers and cyclists that cause most accidents.

    I was appalled to hear of Moira's death last week, and so sorry that it is her desperate story that has prompted this discussion yet again.
