[Image taken 8.11.21] Malton Road, junction with Elmfield Avenue, York. These slip-ins, lead-ins, cut-ins (what are they called?) often channel people on cycles into danger by creating a ‘must be safe as it’s been designed’ (false) sense of security. Retaining this one at works without creating an ASL for people on cycles to feed into and wait in, is unhelpful. People on cycles are out of the main stream of traffic. We have to start from a standstill and try to move into a lane. I think this is an example of unconscious fit person/able person on a lightweight bike bias. (When riding with a council officer at Clifton Moor, he didn't understand why being forced to the side and needing to wait having just started from a standstill to cross the lights only to stop again, might be an issue - see: #167367. He didn’t realise that crossing to the Sofology side and waiting till the motor traffic from the right: #169164 had cleared before the person cycling is able to move out into the carriageway might be a problem for many people starting from standstill. Perhaps if he'd been on my cycle - laden with a week's shopping, been on a heavier cycle of his own, had a child onboard, had painful joints or knees...) Other images today: #175612 and links.
