Give us alternatives to help cut down car travel

Oxford Mail:

11:58am Tuesday 28th April 2015

I agree with the overall message of Derrick Holt’s letter (April 10), that the best way to reduce the severe pollution and congestion in our city (and others too) is to reduce the number of journeys that are made by car. However, I disagree with Mr Holt as to the best way to achieve this end.

How happy I was to see advertised that from Thursday, April 23, until Sunday, April 26, a French antiques market was coming to Abingdon.

Rural areas are suffering disgraceful lack of cover

Oxford Mail:

11:54am Tuesday 28th April 2015

Oxford Mail:

11:52am Tuesday 28th April 2015

In the UK, motorcyclists are not allowed to use cycle lanes or advanced stop lines (ASLs).
