What is wrong with this picture?
Answer: nothing. This scene perfectly expresses the values of the Transport for London traffic philosophy.
Here, ‘Network Assurance’ ensures smooth traffic flow and prevents cyclists and pedestrians from getting in the way of people making important journeys by car down Camden High Street. (It could just as easily be Oxford Street or Regent Street.)
Polluted air, childhood obesity and the suppression of cycling are a small price to pay for making car travel in town centres and for short journeys as easy and convenient as possible.
