Editor's Blog Nov 02nd 2011 - Cars/Bikes
On the way home yesterday, finishing far later than I wanted, I cycled along Fish Market Lane. I did this for 2 reasons; firstly I didn’t want to go through Casemates on my bike, like many people, it annoys me, and secondly it was dark and I had no lights. So off I go and along the Lane, out pops the policeman. Now I don’t have a problem because he was right, there was some mitigation but alas, I had to walk, at least until I was in Laguna estate. The point is that I never see anyone getting picked up elsewhere; yesterday I was walking behind a woman cycling down Irish Town all along the street in broad daylight and not even a single policeman or woman. Across casemates the same, it drives me mental... me on a dark and quiet street... nabbed.

Halloween and the end of term; both a significant point in the annual calendar, more so the end of term, as it means the streets have less cars on them this morning as I cycled to work. I don’t just mean from Gibraltar either, the number of Gib registered cars coming through that border and/or dropping off their children at the frontier is incredible. But the reduction in traffic volume far outweighs my concern on the frontier queues.
