Bristol City Council will have to debate its 20 mph speed limits - after more than 5,000 people signed a petition describing them as "stupid" and "ludicrous".
It argues that the limits make the roads more dangerous due to frustrated drivers watching the speedometer rather than where they are going.
"No driver objects to a 20mph limit near a school for example but a blanket roll out is totally absurd ... 30mph has been in place for many many years, and is the national speed limit because it is ample control in urban areas except for specific spots. Restore common sense and reverse this stupid waste of money."
The council has said that the rules make the city safer and are supported by many Bristolians.
The growing problem of seagulls in our city centres has again been highlighted after a man was badly injured by a gull and ended up in hospital.
Allan Plaister was dive-bombed by the bird, who managed to knock him off his bike while he was cycling in the centre of Bristol. He's now on crutches, but says it could have been worse had he fallen into passing traffic.
Bristol City Council has set aside £200,000 to look at ways of tackling the problem the city's gull problem, and the Prime Minister has spoken about the issue, in the wake of several gull attacks on pets and people in recent weeks.
Bob Constantine has more.

Bristol City Council will try and remove the remaining activists at the Stapleton allotments today.
It's estimated around 50 protestors left the site yesterday but there are still dozens who remain. There are still some protestors in trees and attached to lock points.
It was a largely straightforward operation yesterday - as anticipated - and we are grateful to all those protestors who co-operated and left the site calmly when asked.
There were no arrests and no major incidents. Safety remains our top priority.
Clearly there is a minority who are more entrenched, including those occupying a number of the trees on site. Our specialist team is now preparing to resume operations.
Action to remove the individuals in the trees and several other points will continue during today and into the weekend if necessary.
Safety is paramount, so our specialists will take whatever time is necessary in order to reach a safe conclusion.
