    Suez canal traffic jam

    If anyone's waiting for any stuff to be delivered from anywhere East of Africa, don't hold your breath. There's an absolutely mahoosive container ship the 'Ever Given', stuck in the Suez canal. Apparently they've tried shoving out of the way with every tug boat in Egypt, all to no avail. But...

    UK Low Traffic or Car Free Neighbourhoods - best practice ?

    Does anyone live in or near one - what locations ? How do schools, shopping, public transport work What advantages, disadvantages etc ? It might be useful to be able to cite real UK working examples when responding to local authority consultations and plans.

    Normal traffic density is going to take some getting used to again.

    Clearly we all desperately want this virus under some sort of control and everyone back to work ASAP but Im really not looking forward to the usual amount of traffic on the roads.

    Traffic warden on the take?

    I don't know if this is in the right section of CC,seeing as it's not a 'lighthearted' topic,but we'll see. As my title suggests,to put it bluntly i think a traffic warden who patrols this area is turning a blind eye to some who park on double and single yellow lines. I've mentioned before about...

    Traffic Free Events

    My wife did the New Forest Sprong Sportive with me and she enjoyed the occasion but she really doesnt like roads, to the point that she panics and ends up being a danger to herself!

    A Short History of Traffic Engineering

    A simple and effective bit of design outlining how much other road users are inconvenienced for the sake of cars. I've seen a few of these over the years and I think this is my current favourite, particularly the cycling one.
