[Image taken on 9.5.22] Gillygate, York. Two cyclists wait in the newish ASL with an early green. The lead-in (advisory) lane does not meet current standards as it is very narrow. I watched for five phases of these lights today. Phase 1: ASL left empty. Phase 2: ASL completely obstructed by a motor vehicle (see: #182517). This means people on cycles do not benefit from the early green installed to make their journey safer. Phase 3: Two drivers sped up as they approached and went through the red light (turning into Bootham) (see: #182518). Phase 4: These two cyclists. Phase 5: ASL clear but a huge Argos vehicle went through at speed (see: #182519). I had hoped that the new ASL might stop the red light jumping by motorists. My reasoning: not only is (as it’s always been) the junction a blind turn but now you have to travel even further ie over the ASL even before you get to the light you are jumping.
