I've finally found a reason for the side cyclepaths (see www.youtube.com/watch)! Well, not really. With the amount of people wondering around I simply didn't feel safe cycling along the path and walked. And that's fine. It was an accident scene.

But this does show what happens to the bollard. I didn't take a look at the car, and expect similar damage. This was being cleared quickly and I guess buses would be cleared to use it a little while afterwards.

In the meantime, what do buses do? They can't go round as there's people waiting at bus stops ahead? Or will they be moved back onto the Station Road stands temporarily?

The driver was sat in the car. If to do with any house I'm not sure why they weren't making use of the large amount of space offroad clearly available.

Please note I hold my line in the cyclelane to make sure I get a good recording of the numberplate. You should pull out earlier to make your intentions clear. I did shoulder check to see if anything was coming a lot earlier than my move so knew it was safe.

An example of where narrower lanes are acceptable and work fine - not least as there's little space to do much more here.

Well done to the County Cycling Team who got these in at short notice as part of the (also much-needed!) resurfacing work.

I find Gilbert Road to be mostly a good experience. Perhaps that because I've lived for 30 years with scary vehicular riding and it does feel like there's enough space here. Perhaps it's because I'm used to going at quite a speed, almost peak car speed when going down it.

However, it's not all plain sailing. And certainly rush hour traffic is likely to be a lot worse than this. Here's my experience of today and two obvious violations along with a few smaller ones.

The first instance, a lorry from www.icmgerson.com is illegally parked up in the cyclelane. Some vehicles are exempt from the cyclelane laws, but this is none of them. I pull out after the red car has passed me (the camera angle/zoom fails to catch that) as I'm going the same speed as the people driving here, but I'd expect this to be a considerable issue for a lot of people cycling.

Then, a few infractions as people driving clip the edge of the lane. I'm ignoring them on this clip.

The second instance happens as the people driving approach the lights. I notice the blue Escort Convertible M440 DPN going a bit further into the cyclelane. Then, as the lights change the person driving illegally goes fully into the cyclelane.

This would be a lot more difficult with segregated cyclepaths.

I often ride at lunchtime for a bit of time outdoors. I choose routes that avoid roads, especially busy ones, as much as possible. Today it was a combination of radwagon.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/a-13-mile-central-cambridge-disco.html and radwagon.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/another-10-mile-central-cambridge.html. However, this still doesn't stop motoring offences appearing on my camera.

Today I was astounded by the volume of ASL abuse I saw, at a quieter time of the day. And then threw in some of regular abuses also completely ignored by the police despite the danger they present.

The first, opposite me a car clearly slowly pulls into the ASL. (Please note I just pass the stop line of the cycle lane entrance here as the button to get the lights to change is beyond the white line!).

I think the next clip is the same car, but can't be sure. I see the primary schoolchildren and pull out a bit to give space for accidental movements. At the same time, the driver tries to get past before the crossing but misjudges our relative speeds. The driver then accelerates on down the 20mph limited road. On video frame analysis against the map, they average 25mph from the crossing.

Then two more ASL Abuses bookending Gilbert Road.

And finally a beyond the stop line and ASL abuse at Brookfields.

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 to do about the lorry parked up in the cyclelane. Eventually I move up and pass slowly into the oncoming lane despite not being able to see, as I listen very hard.

The lorry possibly does fit into the last exemption of the 1988 RTA section 21. I just want to show why sometimes what seems like plenty of space (in common sense parlance, an indicator of failing to think) is not.

I ride past it, trying to avoid the door zone. I do thank the walkers who stop for me. Then go on. Further down the shared-use path I come across a bike that might have some difficulty passing this lorry.
