Maybe I'm being unreasonable in thinking that a single tweet from "another London cyclist" doesn't constitute damning proof of book-cooking, but OTOH maybe I'm not. As you have something of a track record in cherry-picking yourself these days I think you'll need to do a bit better.

Of course, silly me. I forgot that of course traffic will be evenly distributed along its length and throughout the day.
Though you were happy to assume apropos of a pretty vague article that it would be concentrated in space and time to the point that the rather vaguely couched design would surely be inadequate... So that's all right then!
