A city of York councillor has waded into a review about bike bollards on Heslington Road after several students reported that they suffered severe injuries falling over them.
Green Party Councillor Dave Taylor, who represents Fishergate, arranged a meeting into the “death trap” bollards last Sunday.
The action was prompted following a post by third-year student George Hughes on social networking website Facebook, which contained a picture of the bollards with a description of “death trap/work of satan.”
Students flooded to the post to comment about their experiences, with stories about broken collarbones to broken bike chains being reported.
YUSU President Kallum Taylor commented: “I thought it was just me doing something wrong because I’ve thought the same thing myself.”
