No more learned an authority than Lord Alan Sugar recently proclaimed that cycling infrastructure is unnecessary because cyclists simply need more situational awareness and training.
I realise now that the noble lord has a point. We could save the tiny number of very important people like Lord Sugar who drive into London minutes on their journeys if we just train everybody to be more situation aware.
There’s just one thing I’d have to add to Lord Sugar’s training programme: it’s not just the cyclists we’d have to train.
Because these signposts also need more situational awareness….
…This utilities box needs more situational awareness…
…This bridge needs more situational awareness.
