Car sick Britain
David Hembrow recently highlighted some examples of car mad Britain.
Here’s another instance of Britain’s barbaric, backward, motor-vehicle-centered transport culture:
Nancy Underwood, 89, walks with a Zimmer frame and is unable to cross the A-road running through her village because there is no pedestrian crossing. In order to visit the Post Office or shop opposite her home in Chideock, Dorset, she has to catch the Number 31 bus three miles to Bridport, where she is able to use a crossing.
She then takes the bus back and stops in Chideock on the opposite side of the road to her house, where she can safely visit the shops.
