Question 1: Do you like bikes?
Question 2: Do you think a new bike lane would be a good idea?
Question 3: Are you gay?
Uh? At least that is how I imagine the survey read. This is what residents of Brighton were asked in a survey about a new cycle path along the A23. They were also asked about religious beliefs.
The council has said:
“This type of survey helps us know whether we’re reaching all sections of the community and which people are using our services.”
I can only imagine this is a major blunder by the local council or maybe they are just really nosy. Apparently other relevant questions they were asked on the bike lane survey included: “if you were an animal what animal would you be?” and “what do you think of Danni Minogues new haircut on X-factor?”
I guess at least we can be glad a new cycle path is been considered. Hopefully, those residents not too offended by some of the questions will vote in favour for the new bike lane.
