It turns out that the road block I came across yesterday was because of a drug related shooting - it even made the national news! It's amazing the things you come across when you commute by bike.
Browsing through a colleagues copy of the sun yesterday I noticed they have launced a new campaign "Nail the danger drivers" after a driver got away with a 2 year ban and £83 fine for killing a pedestrian. All very commendable till you remember that they are also campaigning against speed cameras - have they not noticed the link between the two?
I'm sure i'll get on to speeding in later posts.
