    51% expected road gritting in winter 2010/2011 to be better than the winter before. After significant snowfall this fell by 19% to 32% who thought gritting had actually been any better.

    44% of drivers did nothing during 2010 to be better prepared if winter 2010/11 was as bad as winter 2009/10.

    Speed cameras

    75% of  members say speed cameras are acceptable or very acceptable.

    79% of  members agree with the idea of offering drivers courses for minor motoring offences.

The highway code is clear that motorists should not stop or park in these places and London authorities have issued fixed penalties for a number of years, without dropped kerb or double parking restrictions being indicated.
