Yet another example of a lack of care by Costa Coffee drivers. In this example HN12 YWY Stops in Mandatory Cyclelane at a Pinch Point.

Here's more examples of their dangerous behaviour.

Perhaps Costa Coffee would like to contribute to the estimated £300m UK wide bill for pavement repairs caused by parked vehicles?

Also, it ought to be noted that this location has "no room for a cyclelane", although has enough space for a lorry to park. The cyclelane stops around 20 yards before this photo and starts again over the bridge ahead. This cyclelane is otherwise around 2 miles long and only stops for junctions. The bridge ahead has around 5,000 cycle journeys over it, every day, so that's how important it is.

Of course, people cycling here regularly get hassled by people driving too close, honking aggressively, or even attempting to pass within the same lane. The result is lots of people cycling come up onto the pavement for around 50 yards for their own safety. A large proportion of people cycling here are school children, some as young as 5 or 6 years.
