Ice Cream vans in Future Cars Challenge

I've 'borrowed' this lovely image from the wonderful London SE1 and hope they don't mind. Here's a splendid promo photo of some of the vehicles taking part in the Future Cars Challenge this coming Saturday. As the shot is taken on Westminster Bridge it's no surprise to see two Ice Cream vans included.

The challenge is to get the vans to stop trading in the bus lane, red route, cycle lane and I fear that the overstretched Met lack the resources to be able to tackle this kind of organised crime. Given this dire enforcement on our roads it's no wonder some cyclists prefer the mellow safety of the pavement.
