    Lesley Macinnes, City of Edinburgh Council's transport convener, said: "We want to make sure our roads are as safe as they possibly can be for everyone who uses them...

    [Rule 2]. She wants everyone to tip-toe around private motor vehicles while their drivers behave like puce-faced toddlers.

    A very misleading first sentence:

    "Special new cycleways are to be built in a bid to protect cyclists from traffic on Edinburgh's busy roads."

    No, on short sections of one of Edinburgh's busy roads.

    Hopefully, it'll be a good thing, though I'm not sure why the bollards are to be "collapsible".

    Excellent CCE humour.

    I was wondering about the collapsible aspect of the bollards as well, it can only be so largish vehicles can go ahead and drive over them to park. Either that or they don't do damage when they are inevitably bashed into.

    I suppose it could be if emergency vehicles need to drive in the cycle lane would need to be soft to avoid causing damage and relaying response.

    Preparation for the bollards, by blocking the way to fix a totally unrelated pothole in the road.

    Here's what to do when a 'parked' car blocks an unsegregated cycle lane. Block off the car lane and create a human protected emergency cycle lane of course...

    You'll need a permanent team outside Greggs and maybe some bell-ringers chanting Shame! Shame! Shame!
