No wonder the city is up to the hill in debt.

Driving down Burgess Road by the common traffic lights the car was violently shaken by two sleeping policemen, why would they be there, just yards from the lights and across both lanes?

What must it cost the city to set them there just before the lights, where the speed is not registered?

On return from Bitterne Park to Portswood I noticed, in fact I could not miss them, were traffic cycle protection posts, from Cobden Bridge onwards.

There were hundreds of them at a phenomenal cost to the city for the protection of missing cyclists.

Whoever in the city council approved this spending wants sacking.

No wonder the public thinks the city hates motorists, except of course when lining their pockets with exorbitant parking charging.

Roll on the election we now know who not to vote for.
