Glass in Road

Dear Sir/Madam, I realise you will probably do nothing for me, as I was just unlucky, but I would like to complain about the effectiveness of George Street cleaning. Today as I cycled just past the bus station towards Broad street, I cycled over a large amount of green glass, it looked like it was from a broken beer bottle. I saw the glass too late to miss it (as I was more worried about the bus passing me) and went straight though it and it instantly punctured my bike tire. I rely heavily on my bike as I live in Cumnor. I felt disappointed as I was lead to believe that these roads are cleaned regularly and at 9.20am on a Thursday morning, I did not expect glass on the road, especially such a main street. Please can you see that this problem does now happen again, I would expect it perhaps at 11pm on a Friday night, but I would hope that I would not have to face this problem on my way into the lab.

Thank you for your time,
