7th March 2017 - Lines of thought

Thought for the day : "I hear Geordies listen to music on a Why iPod."

I normally struggle with those who park badly ...
Here I have found a few cases of badly drawn anti-parking attempts in London ...
Stolen from the Net - unashameably

This worrying paintjob has graced the junction of Golden Lane and Old Street for some time now. To be fair, there is an arrow pointing left as well, but it's still a pretty dumb mistake to make.

Is it possible to shuffle a road like a deck of cards? It seems so, if this puzzling junction at Lancaster Gate is anything to go by.

You can't park on either side of this cycle track near Holloway Road. Are these London's narrowest double-yellows?

No, because here's an even tighter gap in the backstreets of Clerkenwell — close to where the old Guardian offices once stood.

More thin yellows, in Finsbury Park. OK, we can kind of get the point. Don't park your moped or very narrow car in the cycle lane. But surely there must be a more elegant solution?

You know how you sometimes put the wrong word into a crossword puzzle, then try to correct yourself by writing the proper answer in extra thick heavy ink over the top? Well, that happens on London's roads, too, as seen here in Catford. L-OK.

Spotted in Hornsey Road.

Can you work out what's happened here? It looks like a utility company dug up a narrow strip of road, filled it in again, then dutifully repainted the road markings... but only the bit they'd damaged.

a similar situation here I think

And finally, an intriguing one. The putative underground canal was spotted in Uxbridge.
 Still like this one though ...

Careful where you park - and don't drink and drive ..
Cheers !
