Another problem is apps such as Waze when the app works out you can save a few seconds by go going down a narrow residential road such as mine. Now we have commercial vehicles from all over the country (their livery gives it away) going down roads they wouldn't normally be aware of.
The link in post #1 has only been going a day and it's already had 7600+ votes

Anyone who thinks ambulances being delayed is wrong can they add to the petition please

Well Bob its certainly getting a lot worse with swathes of the suburbs closing off areas especially around schools placing those horrid wooden planters at the entrance to roads, in saying that i do agree with the areas around schools being closed to traffic, hopefully it will stop all the idiots in their Chelsea tractors dropping their kids off at the entrance to the school....the only problem is the restrictions ive seen run right through the weekend when the schools arent even open! And the affect it has is it pushes all of the traffic onto the main roads with the inevitable gridlock
Last Saturday i drove from E14 to SW19, around 12 or so miles....travel time two hours
Today i had the journey from hell from Swiss Cottage NW3 to home in SE9 which was 17 miles....travel time three hours!!!I think it took an hour to drive the length of Hackney road alone, And i saw two or three ambulances struggling to move through the traffic with their blue lights on
Personally i'd ban Uber and any other speculative taxi companies that operate in a similar manner as they represent tens of thousands of vehicles snarling up the city centre in the hope of scoring a booking, they may be hybrid or electric vehicles but the congestion they cause by just being there is huge.....not to mention sitting in their cars in hard to find parking spaces without actually paying to park, and before anyone mentions it i'm not up there for the fun of it or for a day out, i actually have to work there, luckily not everyday!
Why anyone would own or drive a car for pleasure in central London is beyond me

Seems there are other parts of the UK affected.
I wish I retitled the thread now

I'll be just outside the extended ULEZ when it extends next October so I'll be have the pleasure of all those polluting vehicles driving past avoiding it.
As much as I love London in so many ways maybe it's time to move out a little?
Plenty of reports but I witnessed an ambulance getting stuck myself the other day for 5 minutes which seemed like eternity, it's not nice to see.
Bus drivers have been given permission to do unofficial reroutes up residential streets, doing 3 point turns and mounting the pavement it's crazy!
Local council doesn't listen and says the schemes are a success so I contacted my MP and she said contact the council.

It's amazing how quickly its gone from the best air quality I remember to the worst!

It reminds me of the 6 months prior to the congestion charge coming in, I'm convinced they tweaked the signal timings to cause congestion, before letting it flow when the charge started to make it look like it had an effect. I bet everything frees up and air quality is markedly better when the ulez zone expands in April!

Much of London is in gridlock. Inconvenience for some but it's got to the point where ambulances and emergency services are getting stuck. Please read and consider signing this petition, you may save a life
