IT IS like watching a Pink Panther movie where Kato attacks Chief Inspector Clouseau.

The only difference is that Kato is motorised traffic, Clouseau is an unfortunate tourist pedestrian and King’s Square is the backdrop.

The new pavement in King’s Square appears like what it is: a pavement. To the motorist turning into it, however, they see it only as a road to speed along. The beguiled pedestrian is therefore bushwacked from behind.

Why hasn’t this area been pedestrianised?
