how times have changed

Whilst cycling to the station the other morning, I stopped at a set of traffic lights, when after about a minute it dawned on me that it is very quiet – eerily so. I knew it is Christmas time and there is not a lot of traffic on the roads, but I was also aware of some cars behind me, but now … nothing.

Turning around there they were, all four of them, not making a sound.

Fairly new cars all featuring stop-start technology.

just one of those strange moments
