ASLs are one of the most cost effective improvements that a Highway Authority can make. They put cyclists in front of the traffic at a junction, where they can see and be seen.

A frequent picture on advanced stop lines and MCL at traffic lights. The washed out red tarmac doesn't help. This driver is actually relatively decent.

There's a rare panel underneath a traffic signal here. That is because this location was one of the first places to try out advanced stop lines (ASL) - and initially it needed explaining how they worked.
