The powers are through, or so I’m led to believe, and the Highways Enforcement Agency is now waving powers of ticketing. Not content with trying to stare you down when you drive slowly past, almost daring you to stop and contemplate parking; they now also hover at bus stops and the odd licensed parking permit area.
This morning I saw them walking down Devils Tower Road in twos, as if this part of town is some sort of ghetto; I imagine they walk 4 abreast through Laguna or in the Upper town, maybe tooled up with a space pen and non-slip ink!

On the way home yesterday, finishing far later than I wanted, I cycled along Fish Market Lane. I did this for 2 reasons; firstly I didn’t want to go through Casemates on my bike, like many people, it annoys me, and secondly it was dark and I had no lights. So off I go and along the Lane, out pops the policeman. Now I don’t have a problem because he was right, there was some mitigation but alas, I had to walk, at least until I was in Laguna estate. The point is that I never see anyone getting picked up elsewhere; yesterday I was walking behind a woman cycling down Irish Town all along the street in broad daylight and not even a single policeman or woman. Across casemates the same, it drives me mental... me on a dark and quiet street... nabbed.
