Uglier than sin

These scenes of waste and neglect on the road in and out of Bideford by Morrisons, caused by traffic priority control, are duplicated up and down the land, every day of every year …

Traffic held at red, nothing happening on the junction

Now all road-users must wait, including the toddler, at the ideal level to inhale the invisible fumes that damage human health and development

Now the lights tell the traffic to go, to ignore the needs of the humans at the roadside, who must wait

And look at those unsightly railings. All this waste, neglect and ugliness stems from traffic control. Freedom to live sociably, instead of subjugation to a dysfunctional system, would transform our lives, health, the economy and the environment. (As mentioned elsewhere, those railed-in islands, where pedestrians have to wait, are known in traffic engineering jargon as “pens”. Yes, to traffic engineers and policymakers, we are no better than sheep.)
