It's piffle. Comes up every few years. You get a higher fine for dropping litter in Westminster than leaving your car idling. I've worked there for years and never seen an enforcement officer do either. This is the same Westminster that will not ban vehicles from Oxford Street as they don't want to offend their core voter.
This forum is interesting when there is proper debate rather than "oh yes I agree with you, how awful". There needs to be more fundamental change and I've told you the sort of things you can do. This forum and thread is not going to end up in a critical mass.
I've also shared my frustrations and that all I've ever got by tapping on windscreens is abuse. My favourite being the police who seem to have no interest at all whilst they eat their sarnies - I've got the video. So from time to time I complain to the IPCC, or today with the ambulances running outside Kings, to the hospital.
Gove is just doing all he can to make a mark as the next PM. Sociopath - whilst the media target Graying as he is the soft target.
It's not just parents - again an easy target particularly due to the school run, but most motorists. Back to my fundamental change.
Anyway here's an article on 20mph zones - quite an interesting read (not sure if I agree with all of it) [content.tfl.gov.uk
] Shame this work doesn't get more publicity - a failing of GLA/TfL and boroughs to do more publcising their actions and the reasons/benefits.
Oh and credit Camden for traffic free zones around schools [www.camdennewjournal.co.uk
