@Panther_Taxis Dropping Off in ‪#‎Hills‬ ‪#‎Road‬ ‪#‎Segregated‬ ‪#‎Cycleway‬ ‪#‎Cambridge‬. A less than impressive display by a Panther Taxi driver. This happened at 8:45 this morning, just when the cycleway is the busiest with school kids getting to the local educational establishments.

Note that whilst taxi drivers are allowed to drop off and pick up people in more places than you can park, one place you are not allowed is in segregated cycle infra, which this is.

82231Photo #82231It's possible there is a straightforward explanation for having a rectangle of red tarmac next to a (currently suspended) bus stop, but it's eluding me.

ETA: It would appear to be the start of a 20mph speed limit (there's a sign to say this on the footway) but to date there is still no marking on the rectangle.

It doesn't happen very often - but this car hasn't moved for about four days. Bikes have to be lifted and turned to avoid hitting the vehicle.
