Below, no traffic jam at 8.41am, or below at 8.49am.
Two of the photos show cyclists pootling along the Thames Path ignoring the No Cycling signs. The PCSOs I talked to weren't going to make the cyclists get off - they weren't a problem and, as it turns out, there's no law against cycling there so they can't actually make you get off or issue a ticket unless, of course, you are cycling in a Wanton and Reckless manner.
It makes me wonder whether it's legal for the authorities to put up a sign saying 'No Cycling' when there's no bylaw or anything to that effect? Maybe we can all put up signs - I favour 'No Meddling with Considerate Thames Path Users - be they cyclists, pedestrians, joggers, Segway riders or Motorised Wheelchair users'.
