Got a letter through my door saying: ‘This is a Pedestrian and Cycle Zone that allows cycling and bans motor traffic’

Penalty fine. ENFIELD COUNCIL …Bastards!

Who's idea was it to put these things in place?

I've never seen anything like it anywhere outside of London in a residential area. I wasn't driving - It was almost 8pm and a long journey up to that point.

these new pedestrian areas are a cheeky cash grab i think. Noticed one near where i live and if its a route you usually take, you dont notice, thats what they want

FOund this:

£1million in fines in first year!

Is it just me or is LinkedIn the worst site in the world? So much humble bragging on there it turns my stomach. Plus stupid corporate dummies praising their companies…the same companies who would make them redundant as soon as the tide turns without thinking twice about it.
