large number of car drivers use this street as a rat run to travel from Great Eastern Street (westbound) to New North Rd thus avoiding Old Street roundabout. This is a very narrow one way section of road with a high volume of cycle commuters. Cyclists are faced with the choice of taking up the central position and risk coming into conflict with less enlightened car drivers wishing to speed through this section of road (has happened to me on countless occasions) or being squeezed into the door zone. Rat running can be prevented by simply banning west bound traffic on Great Eastern Street making a right turn onto Pitfield Street. Please look into this.
