So poor little Johnny falls off his push bike and hits his head on one of these, not gonna end well if it`s capable of puncturing a tyre  :-\

I think the idea is that it'll need the weight of a car to expose the spike.  ;)

There is absolutely no chance of these things ever seeing the light of day. Just a mad inventor smoking too much weed in his workshop.

FTFY and yes you're right.  No council will go anywhere near this.  ::)

What we actually need is PLAY streets.

On our Cul de Sac, I'm the only one that doesn't park 1/2 on the pavement and won't double park, because the pavements are narrow and you have to leave room for a fire engine.

If this means I have to park 100 yards from the house then so be it.

Where the main road through Sandhurst is very busy and relatively narrow with narrow pavements in places it is not unusual for cars and especially vans and lorries to pull as far as possible onto the payment so you can't get past as the only three crossing points are about 0.25 miles apart, you have to be prepared to take your life into your hand by walking on the road dodging constant traffic. >:( >:( >:(

Sandhurst has several blind people who like to walk on the pavements and it causes an unexpected hazard for them along with the local oik kids abandoning their bicycles completely across the pavement as they go into the local fast food outlet Herpies for a dose of whatever fat and connective tissue they desire. >:( >:( >:(

You forgot to sign that ' Disgruntled of Sandhurst'.
