First time through this way for a little while. As usual, an illegally stopped vehicle, with a nearby legal space. Looks like they've been here awhile and are not leaving soon. I know you've worked hard on this @IanGManning, what more can w ... [more]

AU12 GJV Licence 570 Parked in Cycle Infra. Note that the space to the right isn't enough to get outside of the doorzone, so it's still not safe to use. And the law talks about ..... The 1988 Road Traffic Act, section 21. Any person ... [more]

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

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

Road maintenance going on in Gwydir Street, limiting the amount of on-road space. For some reason, this lorry driver decided this would be a good place to do a delivery. Not only blocking emergency access, but actually stopped in th ... [more]

Yet another example that the builders really don't care at all about illegally blocking the route for local people. And that the council and police are complicit in not making sure they don't obstruct.

Road closed for street party - one cyclist came through, but the parallel street is fine.

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]

A litany of parking blocking the pavement and forcing people to walk in the road.

See clip at http://youtu.be/Pzsq6Hoeu5U This lorry is illegally stopped. It fufills none of the exemptions to the 1988 RTA section 21. Not only that it's incredibly dangerous. I end up stopping for the walker because I'm not sure what ... [more]

This is a follow up photo from http://www.cyclestreets.net/location/49576/ and http://cambridge.cyclestreets.net/location/49635/ The council have now dumped some asphalt near the pothole at issue. Sadly they still haven't hit the main pr ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/k2YjteGQQSk This really isn't a SMIDSY at all. The driver simply didn't even look when pulling out. Despite me being on the roundabout before them and having the right of way.

It's illegal, causes injury and death. And there's space nearby elsewhere. Why do some car drivers do this, blind ot the issues they cause?

More roadworks in the contraflow cyclelane. There's been a lot around this time. There's some space on hte edge of the lane, but it looks like it's been created by people using the lane and is no where near wide enough to be safe. Note t ... [more]

Does a quick spurt of the blackstuff really count as a repair of this awful cycle lane?

Temporary roadworks in the contraflow cyclelane. Nearby signs suggests it's only for a day, but will check. Note that to pass this obstruction legally, anyone cycling has to dismount and walk along the pavement. The roadway is one-way th ... [more]

I see Saint Andrews Bureau are back to their old bad habits. Parking in a contraflow cyclelane is very dangerous. This road may have "Road Closed" warning signs but actually it is completely open to traffic.

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.

The cycle parking outside this new office building is well used even on a Saturday - either by language students or people despairing of finding parking at the station?

Cycle racks at new office block - the obvious place to put the wheelie bins.

The east end of Bateman Street is continuing to collapse.

Shameful condition of cycle lane.

New cycle parking outside offices at the junction of Bateman St and Hills Rd (see also #28755, in the car park).

New office building on corner of Bateman St and Hills Road, with a not especially generous amount of cycle parking.

Some confusion - one sign tells pedestrians to use the footpath on the other side, but they've also put up cones to create a temporary path - which forces cars into the contraflow cycle lane.

Removal van and a doctor (probably not connected?) blocking the mandatory contraflow lane on Bateman Street

Very nice, but what about the cycle parking?

The detectors at the traffic lights didn't seem to be detecting bikes in the cold weather.

One of Cambridge's more third-world cycle lanes - wouldn't it be nice if Cycle Cambridge could spend their last time and money on fixing eyesores like this?

Driver of white van AM04 BVG thinks it's ok to cross a solid white lane and block the contraflow cycle lane.
