Well, at least we can dispense with the arguments about cyclists riding ‘in the middle of the road’ now. #neverforget the Fuel Shortages of 2021.
I cycled to Lewisham hospital today and there were huge queues to get into the Shell station right outside the hospital Emergency entrance opposite. People driving in Bus Lanes and all over the place. Traffic stretching in each direction, at least back to the gyratory in Catford.
Not only that it delayed a load of staff so the vaccine clinic was backed up with a lot of old vulnerable people queuing in the cold. The nurse who gave me my vaccine was worried about getting fuel for her role as a community carer tomorrow - she’s even hoping the emergency fuel rationing for key workers will kick in soon if things don’t improve. It’s not going well.
