I can’t stand anything that makes the street environment look a mess – CCTVs, signage, parking metres, traffic lights, bollards….basically everything that clutters our pavements. A typical street in Britain is now a mess of this visual untidy clutter.

Now I understand that occationally the pavement needs to be dug up but what drives me CRAZY is when they dig up the street, erect bright orange barriers around it and then disappear for weeks at a time, allowing the hole to be filled up with rubbish and generally look a mess. This has been the case outside of college for the past few weeks. It drove me so mad that I made a sign (click to enlarge)
