Traders' boards

There are literally hundreds of traders' boards illegally positioned across the public highway in this Borough. Most of the time they only affect pedestrians but occasionally they are hazardous or obstrucive to cyclists. Of course this crap Council couldn't give a damn (and still hasn't done a thing about this).

Today's instance shows one such board, quite a big one, which protrudes into the cycle lane on High Road Leytonstone outside the garage opposite Homebase. Look carefully and you'll see that the trader has a board on the pavement in the background as well. That's two offences.
