They want people to give way to them. Yet they ride in groups like this, Rarely do they follow the traffic rules. They choose which ever light is convenient for them.

However our town council staff forgot about the wheelchair bound users in the estate. Now grannies and grandpas in wheelchair have difficulty using the sheltered walkways because they are blocked by these unsightly barriers.
