When I heard about the BBC programme, The War on Britain’s Roads (5 Dec), I drafted an email to the commissioning exec saying I’d keep an open mind, but could they yet again be chasing sensation instead of questioning the system and presenting solutions (as I’ve been proposing on and off for over a decade)? I refrained from sending it, but coincidentally, today’s Guardian had a piece about reactions to a preview, accusing it of sensationalism and misrepresentation. I can’t find the article online (it’s entitled Drivers join cyclists to deride BBC’s ‘road war’), but this is a taster. As we know, the problem is the anti-social traffic control system which puts us at odds with each other and our surroundings. System reform, above all replacing priority with equality, will create a level playing-field and enable all road-users to coexist in peace.
