[Update April 2022 see: #175803.] [Image taken 3.9.21] York rail station. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] The social distancing sign is not fulfilling its purpose and is a hazard and an eyesore. Given that face coverings are no longer mandatory and the crush on trains and in the toilets means distancing is not possible, this sign can go. More worrying is that the grit remains. All wheels are at risk of skidding so that's wheelchair users; people on cycles, often with dependants or people of all ages who are being cared for, onboard; children on scooters, balance bikes and their first pedalled cycles (see: #172873), cargo cycles, and all who are new to cycling... Grit gets moved by weather, wheels, paws and feet. It needs to be cleared up as soon as it appears on places people walk, cycle, scoot, wheelchair. I will report it to LNER again. [Update: It took months to find who owns the sign but on 9 December 2021 I received a message that said: "The sign is a City of York Councils sign, after recent announcements by the Govt. and on Public Health Grounds the sign is likely to now remain in the area but City of York Council will work with LNER to ensure that the sign is in a location where it can no longer be seen as a hazard (probably behind the railings)." But see: #176037.] Other images today: #173797 and links
