Put my name down for raised kerbs!

SIR – Was I alone in noting the irony of two of the letters (WHT, February 13) , both from persons wishing to remain anonymous? The first letter, Highwaymen with our taxes , complained that kerbs at some bus stops in WGC are being replaced. Five letters

SIR - Was I alone in noting the irony of two of the letters (WHT, February 13) , both from persons wishing to remain anonymous?

The first letter, "Highwaymen with our taxes", complained that kerbs at some bus stops in WGC are being replaced.

Five letters later in "Buses danger to the disabled", another reader complained of the difficulty in boarding and alighting at various stops.

One can only assume that Anon One is fit and healthy and therefore does not appreciate the benefit of raised kerbs for people like Anon Two. Or perhaps Anon One is one of those selfish and inconsiderate people who park at bus stops, forcing the bus to pull-up well out in the road, blocking the traffic and making it hard for passengers like Anon Two to board and alight?
