Dear Transport for London,

I'm impressed by your provision of a map and guide to step-free stations on the tube [pdf]. Thank you.

However, it would probably be even more awesome if you'd be willing to consider using symbols that didn't rely on users being able to distinguish between red, orange and green.

You champions.

Love,

Heck, even if it really didn't happen, a colour-blind/impaired person might be attempting to plan a journey for or with a wheely person.

And then the govt decide to press for 'traffic lights' on food labelling instead of useful info.

Gets fingers ready for more typing ...
