No Space For Pedestrians

Don't you just hate all those bloody "A" frames on the footpaths in Oxford? Look at this photo taken this afternoon in the High Street, one of the busiest streets for locals and tourists alike, you just can not move on the footpath.  This area is also one of the major bus stops for this end of the High Street, so when a bus  is emptying 20 or so people you just can not move. Chuck in a couple of bins, and two friends having a chat and you can not move, it must be a nightmare for wheelchair users and parents with prams. Ban All "A" Frames I say from the city centre.

Tricky to walk here if you are blind.

You can always accidently 'knock' them down as you pass by. Or move them out of the way. I've done this many times, it annoys the shopowners!

You shout check out Tesco and Sainsabury's in the Northgate in oxford city centre they have lots of "A" frames outside there shops as well, a little cafe on George street in Oxford have a very big one outside their cafe.

I think that these "A" Frames shout be banned because its bad health & safety and someone can fall over them when they are walking and don't see it!
