Yet another example of how poor the cycle provision is here (or how badly people drive, your choice!) after the poor pass by the Travis Perkins lorry in www.youtube.com/watch

Notice the first van that drives in the cyclelane provided. It's not really a surprise that cyclists completely ignore the ridiculous markings on the road (and litter strewn offroad loop, designed as "GET OUT OF MY ROAD" by a rather dull designer).

This is Highway Code Rule 140 (backed up in law)
www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070308
You MUST NOT drive or park in a cycle lane marked by a solid white line

Then as I approach the pinch point the car that almost hits me as the driver races to beat me into the pinch point. Wow, let's get close to killing someone because that might save a second or so.

This is the important one and is breaking "Highway code rule 163".
