The Killing Fields



There was a candlelit vigil held underneath the scene of the Bow flyover, the scene of two cyclist deaths in less than a month.

It starts with some small words ...we've looked at the roundabout and making it safer might hold motorists up for a few seconds... and ends with people dying.

The odd thing is, it isn't just cyclists being massacred, it's pedestrians too. Isn't it time we started saying: No, it is NOT acceptable to kill people for our own convenience? Because that is what it is, really. It doesn't need much, just to tip the balance in favour of vulnerable road users, rather than the car.

A very local Diamond Geezer's account of events is here.

Of course, the answer didn't say what was actually considered. It was really a polite "go away and don't ask inconvenient questions" sort of answer.
