OK. So here in Jersey there is a "safe route to school" policy, which is essentially all about there are safe access routes for kids to walk to school.
This is a great idea.
Recently some part-time 20 mph speed zones were introduced outside a few of the schools. Despite my inclination to dislike the lowering of speed limits in general, I grudgingly agree with this too.
What is slightly mad, is that one of the roads to which these part-time limits (well signposted, incidentally) apply.. does not have a pavement.
