[Observation from January 2022. The latest Highway Code says or will say road users must give way to pedestrians waiting to cross. I did this here last week. I felt very vulnerable. I don't have braking lights on my cycle. I felt at risk of being hit by a driver. I also felt I was putting the person/people I stopped for at risk. A pedestrian would assume because I had stopped it was therefore safe to cross. But road users can pass on my right albeit in my view not safely.] [Image taken 29.11.21] Crichton Avenue, junction with Burton Stone Lane, York. There's the onroad advisory cycle lane that once was coloured green (part of the York Orbital cycle route and there's the off-road route shared with pedestrians/wheelchair users. The offroad route (marked with the worn cycle symbol) either starts/ends on the tarmac immediately ahead of the outline of the cycle (using the drop kerb which is tactile and has corduroy indicating to blind people it's for cycles) or - OR - you continue left to the End of cycle route sign. This puts you in conflict with: a) pedestrians crossing to/from the island; b) with cyclists who have remained on the road on Crichton Ave and are turning left, c) with cyclists who have used the off-road lane but come off onto Burton Stone Lane at the drop kerb and who are turning left. What a mess. Other images here today: #176464 and links. Other images today: #176415 and links
