As the Evening Times has reported, there are locations where the only way of accessing parking bays – which Glasgow City Council provides – is to enter the bus lane.
As cars do not go sideways they must drive along the bus lane.
Travel from Royal Crescent along Sauchiehall Street, towards Charing Cross, and you'll see the bus lanes change, causing drivers to make lane changes contrary to the Highway Code.
Bus lanes may be required – anything ~ to prevent the buses from stopping on box junctions – but they appear ill-considered and badly designed.
For my money, the main 'design' seems to have been to fill the city coffers to help pay for the Commonwealth Games?
Night of stars
I WOULD just like to thank the Evening Times very much for the most enjoyable night at the Glasgow's Star Turn talent show final on Monday.
After winning tickets I took my family and we enjoyed all the acts.
It proved once again how much talent there is in the city.
Well done, to everyone who took part, and thank you again.
IT'S amazing to see the huge number of tourists wandering about the city centre but embarrassing to see them turned away when they want to bring their kids into licensed premises or request a drink before 11am.
When is Glasgow going to waken up and become tourist friendly by granting more family licences and relaxing its opening times?
Even Largs has 10am opening.
THE commentator was great as he described Heather Stanning and Helen Gover's Olympic win in the women's pairs rowing (yesterday).
He described the occasion perfectly and along with the cheering crowd made it a race to remember.
