Cycle lanes and centreline need repainting

Central cycle lane.

Contraflow cycling Norwich Street, Cambridge Fantastic! Such a small, simple, but incredibly important breakthrough. No entry, except cycles... in the UK! Thank you to whoever is responsible.

Kenzies coach driver parks up illegally in Hills Road cyclelane whilst getting coffee. An increasingly popular stopping place. @LibralLady https://t.co/crxyXmwxRo

This was parked, not unloading as it went over the 40 minute grace period. Even unloading in a cyclelane is illegal.

Travis Perkins using the new cycle infra as an unloading zone. FTA link is http://www.fta.co.uk/export/sites/fta/_galleries/downloads/pcns/drivercard_1.pdf [PDF, bottom of page 3] Also note stopped in zig zag crossing area, a double wham ... [more]

The irony of a "Cyclists, pass with care" notice on a bus driving in the cyclelane.

Another example of misuse of the Hills Road cyclelane. And at a time when lots of children are likely riding from their school.

Oh dear! After getting it right yesterday (https://cambridge.cyclestreets.net/location/84024/), Toyota lorry driver is back to stopping illegally in the cyclelane to unload like two weeks ago (https://cambridge.cyclestreets.net/location/835 ... [more]

Illegally parked in contraflow cyclelane. Right opposite plenty of space to park legally.

It's hardly surprising that people think it's okay to stop up in a cyclelane when the police do it. They do have some leeway, but clearly not in this case.

Illegally Coning Off Cyclelane at @ToyotaCambridge What I don't get with these modern developments is, with so much space, why didn't anyone think of delivery space?

I'd love to know the legal position here. I'd suggest that it follows the car rules, in that only enter the cycle lane if it's absolutely necessary (non-mandatory lane). And my feeling is that it's not necessary, thus breaking the law.

It's a 3-points-on-your-license for this offence. Although it's another example of how people driving get away with traffic offences as this simply isn't policed. The police say they are far too busy to prosecute these style of offences. ... [more]
