[MY EXPERIENCE: At 19.50 on 29.3.23 I was a pedestrian on this side of the road at the other end of the 'measures'. A cyclist - with a very bright front light - had entered the pound from this end. As he neared the entry/exit at the other end a driver entered the pound. He drove straight at the cyclist because the entry point is on this carriageway before slaloming onto the other carriageway. It was unnerving to watch. Goodness knows how the cyclist felt. Two drivers entered from the location in this image despite the presence of a vehicle in the pound and despite the white lines and the sign.]
[Image taken 31.12.22] Burton Stone Lane (northbound), York. Overview of the ‘pound’ looking north. 20mph sign, oncoming (southbound) vehicles priority sign, ie drivers should stop at the double lines (see: #187753). Then northbound vehicles have priority – southbound vehicles should stop at the double lines (see: #187860). I think the priority sign is too high and insufficiently lit for any road user to see it. Other image today and links: #188984.
[MY EXPERIENCE: On Wednesday 11.1.23 in bright weather in the early afternoon I was cycling from Clifton Green. I joined Burton Stone Lane. A driver behind me close- and fast-passed me. Almost immediately however that driver had to stop. S/he had to stop here as there was an oncoming motorist. I was unable to pass by using the cycle channel because there was a motor vehicle this end of it from which men were unloading building items. I therefore sat in the pollution and was unable to use a facility on which ward funding (see: #188991 and search on 'cost') was spent.]
