London – Lorry/Truck Danger
My wife and I flew to London from my home town in early September .
The first night in the metropolis , I read an article in the Evening Standard newspaper . Who said that the City of London decided to ban construction lorry drivers ( truck ) making left turns , after several accidents where cyclists have been killed by left- turning HGV vehicles.
In the magazine there is a photo in which a bike ended up under a truck and the cyclist died .
The Yellow Bicycle
I wanted to link the article further , also to take a photo of a yellow (see photo below) bicycle on a street in London. Back at the hotel , I started to play with the image , made the edges a bit darker , cloned it a bit in PicsArt and then stretched the picture slightly.

Even in my small home town of Skellefteå in northern Sweden , there have been fatal accidents involving bicycles and lorries. However , here there are several kilometers of bicycle paths . It is highly dangerous to ride in the middle of traffic everywhere. Separate bicycle paths would therefore save many lives.
