Bizarre changing of a speed limit in a quiet residential area. All the residential roads here have 20mph now as standard, except the one heading off to the left here. I suspect it might be because it's a private road.

Full Picture: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8V93-j0xb4gS181VDZMUFFqNDA/edit?usp=sharing I just crossed over the road at a toucan crossing and cycled up the road towards my left turn. Usually around half way up I hear the crossing sto ... [more]

A very useful ramp. This ramp does its job of slowing down motor vehicles. But its a rare species these days as 'vertical speed measures' like this are now out of favour by highway authorities. New ones have to be much flatter, to reduce no ... [more]

Lots of signs at the end of Wettenhall Road - oh and some bikes parked on the footway.

New much flatter speed bump. In fact this is so flat you barely notice - much better for bikes than the older models along here.

Speed bump in Catharine Street. Their steep edges are perfect for ejecting the contents of bicycle baskets into the road - for the uninitiated.

Ekin Road - speed humps

See clip at http://youtu.be/ES-Kq9nH4Dk This is a classic case of a driver with a "I just must get ahead" attitude. It did absolutely nothing to speed their journey and only acted to block me. On top of that, looking at the road marki ... [more]

Whenever I travel down Radegund Road around 9am there is a car obstructing the cycle bypass lanes to the traffic calming outside Coleridge College. This driver became aggressive when she saw me taking a photo. She reversed at me, and th ... [more]

New speed cushions on Prospect Row

See clip at http://youtu.be/Jn7InpvpEdI I heard the first car, which was very loud, but then was pretty shocked by the speed of the second in a narrow road with limited visibility. At the end of this short straight, it's a village centre ... [more]

See clip at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GELEhVW8WWQ The design of this "cyclepath" clearly falls well below that which users would ever find safe and actively encourages drivers to ignore vunerable road users, potentially lethally.

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpH3xmRSnjA First, the car in front slows to make a left turn without hooking the bike in front (well done!). I manoeuvre to get past the turning car quickly (after checking it was clear to do ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItT3arOPiT8 Maybe not quite what I'd normally be highlighting, but motorbikes going through Cambridge with excessive speed (i.e. well above the speed limit) are really getting my goat.

A straight road will entice motorists to speed. Reducing the forward view through alternating parking bays with the lane winding between the sides of the road is an effective measure for speed reduction which does not require altering the k ... [more]

Selective speed cushions. Speed cushions slow down vehicles with a narrow base (like those in low and zero rated vehicle licensing duty bands), while cars with a wide wheel base (large people carriers, 4x4, limousines and vans) can just spe ... [more]

A raised speed table would have been better, but a flush kerb and a speed bump to slow cars at the blind corner are an improvement over what was on the approved plans (as #16990). See #19487 and #19486.

Had a raised speed table been installed, pedestrians on the opposite side (natural line to the reception of the care home) would have received a better deal... Ref #19486 and #19487.

After some campaigning a dropped kerb away from the blind spot has been installed (see also #19486, close #19492 and a kerb for pedestrians #19491). A speed bump has also been added at the entrance / blind spot. The hedge has been trimmed a ... [more]

Seymour Street How stupid to put this raised table ten metres away from Mill Road! It should be inline with the footway there.
