Think before voting
THE other day I had my first experience of driving along one of the new 20mph zones imposed by the council. Rather much to my surprise, I was passed on the inside by a cyclist who was clearly going much faster than me.
And before the cycling brigade takes this as another anti-cycling rant, it isn’t; but it does seem a little bit of a crazy situation.
Many such schemes and daft ideas appear in The Press and everyone has differing opinions.
Please remember who has been responsible for many of these ideas when you vote in the next council elections.
Then you will be able to show your support for or against many of the following: Lendal Bridge closure; 20mph zones; bin removal; salt bin reductions; council tax hikes; Beckfield Lane tip closure; extensions to travellers’ sites and proposed new ones; local development plan; proposed building on green belt; proposals to build an extra 22,000 homes in York; potholes in pathways and roads; dimmed street lights; A59 Park & Ride and all the changes that go with it along Boroughbridge Road and beyond.
I am sure you can all think of more.
Philip E Sunley, Paddock Way, York.
