LONDON (AP) — If you go to Abbey Road in London, you just have to have your picture taken crossing the same street where The Beatles did, right?

That’s getting to be such a problem authorities are considering stationing a crossing guard there.

The BBC reports residents have complained about increased traffic during the summer, and city council members are concerned about the number of tourists spilling into traffic.

The council is reviewing safety proposals but it has yet to agree on anything.
