“Screw You, Disabled Patients!”

“Lycra louts are far more important. Find another dentist…”

“The cycle lane will come up off the road onto the pavement and block off the whole front of the building and there will be no access for patients to park, including two disabled spaces.

“They’re making a road out of bollards either way for a two-way cycle lane. Outside my building they’ve got to bring it back onto the pavement so we will not be able to get on or off.

“It’s really frustrating as there has been no consultation and it’s just not been thought through.”

Why would they consult with you? You’re just a business ratepayer! The farmer doesn’t ‘consult’ with the cow before he slaps the suction pads on, does he?

“The council contacted me to say I do not have a licence for the dropped curve outside the building, which I bought three years ago because of the parking. We know the dropped curve has been there since before 1990.

I’ve had to get a solicitor involved, which is another expense.”

Of course! You’re just a dentist! Good grief, man, don’t you realise cyclists are far more important to society!

A spokesman for Brighton and Hove City Council said: “As the city begins to see more people go back to work, there is a need for residents to carry on cycling and active travel.”

Clearly, no need for them to get their teeth seen to…

“Members of the public are encouraged to comment.

So you can ignore them.

    Just because you are dentist, you are still a nobody, unless you have been washed ashore and lodged in a nice hotel, just pay your taxes and shut up. Viva Tommy.

    Perhaps the dentist should apply to join the local lodge.

    Poorly thought out and badly designed urban cycle lanes help nobody, not motorists obviously, but not cyclists either. As always with government and council projects, nobody who actually lives in reality land gets a say in what gets done. As a result a great load of money is spent on screwing stuff up and then it either stays screwed up or another great load of money is spent on putting it back how it was. It goes without saying that nobody gets fired for incompetence.
