London to Implement Polite Version of Sidewalk Lanes

Back in May, some pranksters split a stretch of sidewalk into separate lanes designated for tourists and New Yorkers, and it was like a dream. Now London is trying something similar, except, as you might expect, they're not being as pushy about it. Instead of painting actual lanes on the sidewalk, a group of business owners around Oxford Street will politely suggest that shoppers hew close to buildings as they stroll, if it's not too much of a bother.
