Bus-spotting meets font-spotting

Does anyone know what font is used on these vintage bus blinds? I know of a London Underground font but these look quite different. Any similar ones out there, preferably free?

Wheelchair-accessible hotspots in London?

My friend & housemate has a big birthday weekend planned (London, Thursday – Monday).

How does UK traffic law work in terms of speeding tickets?

How does UK traffic law work regarding being responsible for speeding tickets for rental cars? I have received a photo of the car that was rented under my name and that, on the Avis papers, I was the driver. However you cannot make out any kind of face or person driving the vehicle in the "photographic evidence" that the traffic cam took. In the UK, am I liable for the cost of the fine, regardless of whether the actual driver at that time can be proven from their photo? I.e. because I hired the car, I must pay the fine? Would there be any chance between the Road Safety Unit and Avis that I would be in more trouble if I can't remember if I was the driver at that time, the photo doesn't help, and I don't know who of the people travelling with me was driving at that time either (even though they weren't registered drivers for the rental)?

Crime fiction about London?

I'll be spending three months in London this spring, and I'm looking for more novels or stories--mysteries, thrillers, or other variations of crime fiction--that offer a really great sense of London but that aren't historical fiction. Barbara Vine's King Solomon's Carpet, the Sherlock Holmes stories, and Dickens's Bleak House all work, but I don't much care for Anne Perry novels or Bruce Alexander's Blind Justice, for example. Suggestions for crime fiction that gives a great sense of London?
