It’s much better now the pop-up cycle lanes have these ‘wands’ because you can see the lanes at night. They look just like the runways at airports at night-time. On the negative side, I’ve noticed some pop-up cycle lanes are quite narrow. My point of view is if they’re going to keep the pop-up cycle lane around Camden and Kentish Town and all those other places, they need to make them wide enough so everybody can use them, including people in handcyles. We should work together with motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and mainstream people.

Hi. My name is Jill. I work for the Synergy team - a speaking up group for People with Learning Disabilities. I am also a JARGON BUSTER. I go to meetings and to make sure people don’t speak in jargon I have a bell to ring, and Jargon John comes with me. It is very important for me to speak out for people with learning disabilities when it comes to Jargon. In everyday life it is on TV, in hospitals, schools, all over the place. It is my job to stop people using Jargon and use Easy Read with pictures. It is very important for the future. A future where a person with a learning disability can be independent but still get the help they need to guide them in the right direction. Jargon is not a good thing. It is only there to make you look good. People with learning disabilities need to know what is being said in their meetings.
