Nextdoor - I have Good News!!

Sarah B
in Balham
Like so many other Streetlifers, I have been really sorry at the move over to Nextdoor as per my posts..... BUT I was talking this morning to my sister in East London who is using N/D and has put my mind to rest over lots of things that I was unhappy ... [ more ]

So.....how do you access other areas then? My area is so small whereas on Streetlife it covered Mitcham, Streatham Vale, Streatham Park, amongst others. Neighbourhood seems to consist of a few people who I can talk to any day as they live nearby.....

Bye Bye Streetlife

Christopher
in Streatham Vale
It appears that Streetlife is merging into Nextdoor. I hope this will not remove the excellent sense of community and local feeling of SL.

Drivers adhering to 20 mph speed limit being subjected to 'harassment' from other drivers

Mel M in Furzedown
During the course of my employment, I drive between Wandsworth, Lambeth and Lewisham on a daily basis. I have done this for many years, but am now finding it very stressful due to the 'harassment' I receive from other drivers when I adhere to the 20 ... [ more ]

As the average speed of London traffic is about 8mph, I can see no reason why the whole of London should not be subject to a speed limit of 20mph. That way everyone would know where they stand and enforcement would be easier. Accidents and deaths ... [ more ]

People totally missing the point I made. The AVERAGE speed is already 8mph. Just that nutters speed when on side streets but then hit the jams. OVERALL 20mph speed limit would not make that much difference. And no, it should not just be near schools. ... [ more ]

As Ian says, budget cuts have decimated the old Traffic Police. But we could install more cameras, they can be used to issue speeding fines. Plus they could monitor other criminal activities as well. Big Brother? Who cares, I've got nothing to hide, ... [ more ]

Speeding is bad all around London. Motorists care nothing for anybody but how quick they can get where they want to go. Selfish and inconsiderate once they get behind the steering wheel of their weapon of choice.

Shahid, anybody can look up the stats that prove, as they have for years, that a pedestrian is more likely to survive being hit at 20mph than faster. And why do you need stats to prove basic commonsense anyway?

Speed deniers. Perhaps rather than impose speed limits we should just ban cars completely and only allow professional drivers on our roads in vehicles that have their maximum speed restricted. To 20mph in cities.

Shahid, it is not up to me to prove anything, the figures are in the public domain for anyone who cares about road safety to access, why don't you try it? As for driving, no I gave up my licence recently after 50 years of driving without one accident, ... [ more ]

Actually I gave up smoking about ten years ago....! And my opinion on motorists, especially some commenting on here has always been the same. Unfortunately, lots of innocent pedestrians and other motorists suffer because of their "me me" attitude.

Totally wrong again mate. I am all for 20 mph zones everywhere, unlike you, as less speed equals more people alive. You just want consultations and restrictions near schools. I want speeds reduced everywhere for everyone's benefit, not for a few where ... [ more ]

Mike, you have to realise that with the average car journey being probably less than ten miles, that could add 250 seconds to a driver's journey. That's over six whole minutes! God forbid they have to lose over five minutes of their lives to maybe ... [ more ]

Maria S: I did not mention six miles. The average journey is allegedly ten miles. The extra time by slowing down is apparently 25 seconds per mile. So 10 x 25 would add 250 seconds to an average ten mile journey. Or it did when I went to school (mind ... [ more ]

I applaud what you say Jo P, but unfortunately I am not optimistic that this will happen in my lifetime. I hope it happens in yours. Since the day mankind first walked upright on two legs we have been systematically destroying the earth in some way, ... [ more ]

Pedestrians cannot be licensed, every Briton is born with the right to walk the Queens Highway! Cyclists are a different matter however.....like the one I just saw cycle past my house, no lights, no hands and texting on a mobile. At least he was on ... [ more ]

Best bet is to train drivers to treat the roads with care and respect for other road users, particularly pedestrians, pay attention to the road and not your phone, always watch the traffic and the road and don't exceed the speed limit whatever it ... [ more ]

Quite right. Outside my house currently there is a line of cars belching toxic fumes whilst stationary. So cars don't even have to drive at 5 mph to kill you. All the more reason to ban non essential traffic, especially cars on the school runs every day.

School runs are not essential, especially when there are hundreds of special school buses. And people driving kids to school ARE the cause of poor traffic flows. People need to take their heads out of their exhausts and look around at the real world. ... [ more ]

Makes you wonder how we became one of the greatest trading nations in the world in an era when nothing travelled faster than about 10 mph and the "pollution" from the vehicles was even good for your roses.....!

Shahid Rafiq: Just seen your comment, surely you're not going to resort to that old chestnut. It was trading as we paid the price the people selling the "goods" demanded at the time. Then we decided it was wrong and abolished trade in certain goods. ... [ more ]

Judging by the way I see the men dress round my way on Friday, I think a long nightshirt and trainers would be suitable, although as Hannah C says you'll need to remove your shoes. For women I don't know as I thought only men could enter the mosque.....

Dog Owners- Would (or do) you use a FitBark?

Alan L
in Merton Park
I'm looking around at a fitness tracker for a dog and do't know if its a total waste of money or a really good useful thing? The most popular is the FitBark https://www.fitbark.com/ but here are other ones. Any views on these types of devices?

Parking on white lines

Heather S

What is the telephone number to ring when your drive way is being blocked? I live in Croydon and I am constantly being blocked in. Can't get any joy from Website

The police will not get involved in simple parking disputes, white lines and drop kerbs are council responsibilities and have been for years. Police enforce Red Routes and serious obstruction. Sorry but blocking your drive isn't that.

We need a cleaner and I am learning Spanish, so thought I could combine the two. Any recommendations would be gratefully accepted. Please PM me.
