juliet: The towers at Canary Wharf seen from Staves Hill in Bermondsey (london wharf)
The other day someone linked me to this report on a trial of Intelligent Speed Assistance on London buses. ISA uses GPS to obtain data on where you are and thus what speed limits apply, and then compares that with the speedometer, and either makes a nuisance of itself warning the driver that they're speeding, or (as in this case) actively limits the speed to the speed limit.

transport geekery )

More than anything else this strongly suggests to me that what TfL (& the police?) really need to be doing is enforcing 20mph zones, on everyone.

Tories want to give council tenants money to buy in the private sector - how, exactly, do they get from "social housing as a transitory stage" to "transforming council estates so that people have a sense of local pride and ownership"? Surely the effect would be exactly the opposite - no impetus to care about the local surroundings because you wouldn't expect to be there long?

ION: date I received "please pay us money" letter from LSBU: Fri 31 Aug (after 5pm so could not phone immediately). Date money is due: Tue 4 Sep. Number of times I have so far phoned, got answerphone, and left my number, name, student number, etc (as per request on answerphone): 3. Number of times I have been called back: 0.

(If they refuse to give me my discount for paying on time because of this I will be Very Very Cross Indeed.)

Many more pedestrians than average in Hyde Park. It would be nice if some of them kept up the walking when the tubes return...
