29 Jan: Census Point

Taken in Ivydale Road this morning. A cheery police officer was stopping random cars and handing them over to some equally cheerful beardy types for questioning.

I have heard rumours of road calming measures for Ivydale Road (not before time – we saw a girl run out into the road right in front of a car this morning; luckily the driver’s brakes and reflexes were excellent and nobody was hurt). The road gets used as a mini rat run by cars and light goods traffic. Cars are parked on both sides, and when the P12 is coming in both directions – usually when we’re not on it – the tailback is pretty awful.

Mum’s new house is very close to this sign.
