147769Photo #147769Too many kids arriving on narrow pavements and to many parents in cars. It was necessary to install cameras here before. This road should be closed between 08:00 and 09:30 and from 14:45 to 15:15 to enable parents and kids to remain socially distanced whilst picking up and dropping off.Track:

147624Photo #147624This road is very busy and fast especially with the diversion around the closed seafront . I like the closed seafront . I think the next step is to reduce traffic on this road. Make it one way and have the second lane as a protected cycle way. That way we can all share the space more fairlyCycleway:

Often the drivers are very aggressive and I've witnessed verbal abuse and threatening behaviour. Parked cars are often damaged. It can be very intimidating driving on this street and cars often push through cyclists when they are too impatient to wait for them.Temporary closure:

147393Photo #147393There is not enough safe space for cyclists on elm Grove, too many cars park illegally and pull out quickly making it incredibly dangerous for cyclists like myself. Sometimes it's safer to go on the pavement and we shouldn't be punished because of dangerous drivers. The road is wide enough for two cycle lanes in both directions, and heavier policing on illegal parking is needed.Cycleway:
