Around some school crossings you’ll now see the acronym "SLLT" painted on the footpath, a reminder to Stop, Look, Listen and… umm… do something else I can’t remember at the moment, before you cross the street. It’s probably backed up by a primary school education campaign of some kind.

Wait a moment, "SLLT"?! I’m sure it’s obvious to you, as it is obvious to me that this is an easy target for graffiti. They might as well have put adverts in the papers invitingpeople to come along and add a line to the second L to make it "SLUT". Whoever made up the acronym and decided to decorate crossings with it must have been out of their minds.
