19261Photo #19261On "drop-off Sunday" (beginning of term) Kings Parade was reduced to one lane by parents delivering their offspring and belongings to Corpus Christi College. To give way to oncoming traffic the taxi KX56 HHV (license 158, see also #19068? and #19484) reversed into a cyclist. According to one witness, it was not the taxi driver's fault, as "he reversed out of courtesy". A view apparently shared by the police, though the taxi driver agreed to pay for the repairs.Enforcement:

19156Photo #19156Bridge street in the morning rush.

I count 21 people cycling in this photograp, one bus (nearly empty), no cars.

If those people were in cars the queue would be nose to tail, over 100m long. I made a 40 second video and counted 47 bikes, one bus, one car and two empty taxis. Again if those 47 cyclists had driven the queue would be backing up all the way to Chesterton Road.

That is why we should be doing everything to encourage people to cycle instead of driving

19010Photo #19010Who needs segregation ?

Excellent cycle route across Parkers Piece, no segregation which means people can use their common sense rather than being herded into places where they do not fit.

Plenty of width + plenty of visibility = no conflict.

In the morning rush it is busy enough with people walking and cycling that a seperate footway would be a benefit to make passing easier and more comfortable for everybody. But hey, what's the rush, slow down, enjoy the morning air and the sociable buzz from crossing this beautiful city on foot or by bike.

19008Photo #19008Bus stands in St Andrews Street, just around the corner from the main "bus station" in Emmanuel Street.

General traffic is restricted here by the flying motorbike sign. The street is one way to motor traffic, 2 way to cycling - note the sign in the top left of the picture (this sign requires DfT authorisation).

Contraflow cycling is unsegregated between the Hobsons Street junction (the entrance to the "pedestrian priority" area, in the distance) and the junction with Emmanuel St. You can see the start of the cycle lane on the right of the picture, just before the road becomes 2 way to all traffic (behind the camera).

The lady on the bike has just stopped to allow the gent in front of her (who appeared oblivious to her presence) to finish crossing the road. Another example of how aggressive lycra louts bring carnage to the streets ! - ban 'em all I say.

I'm not sure if I should classify this under "good practice" for maintaining 2 way cycling, or "enforcement" for the lorry.
