Driv­ers are al­ways hit in pocket rather than cy­clists

Evening Times - - POINTS OF VIEW -

Happy for kids and par­ents who have been fight­ing for this de­ci­sion

YOU re­cently re­ported an ar­ti­cle on cy­clists.

The coun­cil should ban them from pave­ments and pedes­trian precincts un­less there is a cy­cle lane or signs say­ing you can use it.

Peo­ple get daily abuse if they ask them to go on the road but in time there is go­ing to be a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent and then the coun­cil will have to take ac­tion.

I also know that the coun­cil has started elec­tric bikes for rent.

We have th­ese in town now with de­liv­ery couri­ers us­ing elec­tric bikes and some go up the wrong way on streets and on pave­ments.

Let the traf­fic war­dens book them or the peo­ple who vol­un­teer to do polic­ing in the town and the po­lice.

Once they get fined may be they will think twice on do­ing it but coun­cils go af­ter the driv­ers rather than cy­clists who are eas­ier to find and fine.

GREAT news for equal­ity (Notre Dame High to ad­mit boys for the first time af­ter coun­cil de­ci­sion, ET on­line).

You can’t pick and choose th­ese days.

GREAT to hear – fi­nally equal­ity. Happy for the kids and par­ents who have been fight­ing long and hard for this de­ci­sion.

I can imag­ine there will be ones not so pleased but hey ho, that’s how the cookie crum­bles.

OR­GAN­IS­ERS can’t just be ex­pected to sign 50/50 when there isn’t the same de­mand for the fe­male artists at the mo­ment. It’s not re­al­is­tic (Nina Nes­bitt hits out as TRNSMT boss de­fends line-up, Thurs­day).

I’d imag­ine that the or­gan­is­ers are prob­a­bly look­ing for a re­turn on their in­vest­ments, which they won’t get if they just hire loads of women that mu­sic fans, in­clud­ing women, aren’t re­ally look­ing for.

NINA Nes­bitt gave a free set in the mid­dle of Glas­gow that only a hand­ful of peo­ple turned up for.

She should know bet­ter than most that it takes big names to sell tick­ets and there just aren’t that many about right now that TRNSMT pun­ters would shell out for.

FIRSTLY I am not on the vot­ing reg­is­ter and haven’t been for well over a decade (Ca­tri­ona Ste­wart: It’s the last day to reg­is­ter to vote – your bal­lot counts, Tues­day). I de­lib­er­ately do this as I have found that since do­ing this I no longer get has­sled to do jury duty as well as stay­ing off the snoop­ing gov­ern­ment radar.

The coun­cil send let­ters threat­en­ing to fine peo­ple if they don’t reg­is­ter – but it’s just scare­mon­ger­ing. How can they fine some­one if they don’t even know who the per­son is and

aren’t even sure who’s stay­ing at the ad­dress. Sec­ondly I don’t care about vot­ing – they are all plonkers, al­beit it some more than oth­ers.

And thirdly if I were to vote I would rather vote for a mon­key in a zoo – they would prob­a­bly be of more use than any of th­ese de­ceit­ful politi­cians and rub­bish po­lit­i­cal par­ties.

I VOTED to stay in the UK and leave EU.

Looks like I was wrong both times – no point in me vot­ing again.

AP­A­THY rules – good luck to all the gravy train seek­ers, but I don’t care who wins.

I THINK the coun­cil re­ally needs to get out to check up on our pot­hole-filled streets in Glas­gow.

Some of the craters around the city cen­tre are aw­ful. Car garages must be lov­ing this time of year! Name and ad­dress sup­plied

I’M sick of hear­ing about Black Fri­day. When will shop­pers re­alise that so many of th­ese so-called deals are just an ab­so­lute rip-off?

I THINK the city coun­cil has done a great job this year in Ge­orge Square with its Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions.

It’s lovely to see all the fam­i­lies walk­ing about and tak­ing in the sights. It’s also ideal for tourists who are vis­it­ing Glas­gow at this time of year.

IT’S sad to see an­other fa­mous old Glas­gow store de­mol­ished with the What Ev­ery Woman Wants site be­ing the lat­est one.

I re­mem­ber go­ing there as a child and be­ing in awe of how big the store felt. I would love to see old pic­tures of the shop printed. Name and ad­dress sup­plied
