in which it is suggested that parliament consider the continental system of organising traffic

amazing comment by a tireless defender against the War On The Motorist, from Hansard, 30 March 1984:

Mr Greg Knight (Derby North)
Several hon. Members have spoken of the need to educate cyclists. However, if any road user needs to be educated it is not primarily the cyclist or motorist, but rather the pedestrian. I hope that in due course pedestrians will pay a little more attention to the needs of other road users. I fear that that may not be the case unless we eventually introduce a system similar to that in continental countries, where pedestrians are sometimes prosecuted for jaywalking.
