Another great idea that got lost: Most pedestrians shouldn't be let out on the street

It's pretty simple, I would have thought. Move your right foot forward. Move your left foot forward. Repeat as necessary. But London is full of people who don't know how to walk. Take a trip to Oxford Street and see for yourself. It's like stock car racing without the cars.
