Getting there

Road closures always cause confusion. The mapping services of road directing apps are just not adjusting fast enough to every road closure, so that all types of vehicles get stuck.

It doesn’t matter whether we use ‘What three words‘ or any other Sat Nav, it depends on what is programmed into the software, which determines how we get there.

I have been annoyed many times, using Google maps, that I was directed to the back of a property or another side of the road, rather than where I wanted to get there.

Not even an A-Z can be printed fast enough to reflect road changes.

I think the people who invent LTN schemes have a duty of care to help those needing to use the affected roads, to get around efficiently.

Whilst our towns are built on the expectation that roads around buildings are accessible, now some new policies think those roads should be closed.

That does not take into account needs of people within schemes who require car access, using the very roads, our city planners relied on.

It seems a new fashion to declare all car or vehicle traffic public enemy number one.

There are many more things society can do to reduce carbon emissions.
