I’m sitting having my regular relaxing read of the Saturday newspapers in Apostrophe (marred only by Clannad playing) but I cannot believe the facts in front on me.
Seemingly a study has shown that the average Londoner covers 49.30 feet in 10 seconds on a busy pavement whilst a New Yorker covers 50 feet on a sidewalk.
Don’t believe it ! Untrue !
Londoners exhibit zero “lane” discipline when walking. They walk slowly, in gaggles, holding hands…..you name it, anything but walk quickly.
It could be worse in Cardiff, Wales it’s 35.69 !
