Can I suggest that you put pimples on the tops of your paving slabs to prevent the public from falling on an ice rink?! In the wet these paving slabs are just like an ice rink. The fashion in the shops these days is for flat smooth soles. These paving slabs are far too smooth. And of course it's not just in Nicolson Street but all over the city!
