Lara Croft Might Get Her Own Street

Lara Croft, star of the Tomb Raider franchise, might be getting her own street, Lara Croft Way, in the UK city of Derby.

Back in July, the city's council asked for suggestions for two new roads. After getting over 100, the city council narrowed down the choices to eight. Those choices can be voted on via internet by anyone able to access the internet. You don't have to be a Derby resident! Which means that the city will most likely be getting a street named after Lara Croft.

It has been noted that there is a connection between Derby and Lara Croft. The studio behind the original Tomb Raider was based in Derby before shuttering in 2006.

    I believe the internets have successfully modeled this town in its image. Had we of gotten to this poll before the finals I am wondering what that list of 8 candidates would of read like... Anyone have a local council in need of infrastructure advice?
