I see Birmigham & the West Midlands are getting Red Routes.

They may/will have the privilege of getting 24 hour CCTV tickets for stopping on a red route in the early hours of morning !!

Take-aways will lose all their stopping business & many traders will lose a lot of business as well.
Oh well doesn't matter, as long as there is an empty road for the occasional bus.

I.ve looked at the "red lines" on the Stratford Road in Shirley (A34) and I can guarantee some fun for members. Some are already broken, painted over yellows and generally a dogs breakfast. On one section at Hall Green the lines are just a matter of a few feet then a white line - across peoples drives - then reds again for a few feet and so on - it is a joke. If they had not widened the pavements they could have had roadside parking and less congestion but Planners don't know what they are doing.

Or maybe they do - less congestion would mean ...less congestion and no need for congestion charging.

Call me cynical
