@Warwickshire_CC @Warwick_DC who is responsible for this @bollocksinfra on Sydenham Drive, Leam? Are cyclists really supposed to dismount, walk 3m across the footpath junction, and then remount? Confusing and pointless. https://t.co/uMC0StC ... [more]

I guess they thought this old piece of path would be acceptable within this huge motorway building project. If someone ever did shut this gate properly and someone in a wheelchair needed to open it, it would be extremely difficult to do ... [more]

I didn't think it was possible for this crossing to become more farcical, but the roadway has been closed, meaning the cycle route bumps kerbs for no purpose.

@ErnieMarples @magnatom @FMcAveety Presumably this "cycle lane" on Govan Rd is also included in km total #pointless https://t.co/ZbbBvLyXlq

Painted cycle lanes on Greenfaulds Road, but only where there isn't a central right-turn lane.

The kerbside painted cycle lanes on Russell Street are totally obstructed by parked cars.

See clip at http://youtu.be/x-Q_rgSeqTA This is the first time I've tried these side cycle lanes at Cambridge Railway Station. They are there to enable people riding to get round a stopped bus, whilst it waits for the rising bollard to l ... [more]

Leeds City Council has helpfully provided this cycle path to help local residents put their bikes in the car. All you need is a small ramp and you are straight in the boot.

See clip at http://youtu.be/8ajCOryGta4 Passing the roadworks on Grange Road and saw a completely useless sign. Halfway through the disruption is a blue "Cyclists Dismount" sign. I believe these signs are often put up in cyclelanes a ... [more]

See clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry-Tx1XFp5k This wasn't a close pass, it was all legal and safe, just completely boneheaded. As the clip starts parked cars and oncoming traffic are visible. So why pass only to stop? Whilst ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/MxoNRowO6Rc "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 The first car to pass is fine, the second is too close, and the third is utterly pointless. I stop ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/JCImDHEJmg8 "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 This village is full of parked cars. This driver pushes through when there isn't space. Then has to ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/c7g1CIfZEUA "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 Pointless for two reasons. First, the pinch point is approaching. Second, the driver turned right a ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/ndwzxOxZy8M On the basic level "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 This was the worst pass today. Absolutely no need for it. Scared me enough to pu ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/hq8ZNVfYCik A very close overtake which was pointless. Traffic ahead is clearly stopped at the lights. Didn't see the car again, despite going the same way for the next half mile at least (I can miss the light ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/EkkC9JK2j8A An utterly pointless overtake. Stopping and turning right not 10 yards after passing me? Because of the overtake move, the turn was very poor as well, cutting across the entrance for anything comin ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/SbVcaKCW6mk Breaking "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 And both overtakes were pointless as I passed them both at the lights 200 yards later. ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6As-iFeBGDg This is infuriating. Not only is there no space (breaking "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314) but there's a stopped b ... [more]

Pointless cycle lane on Hawthorn Street, connecting layby to side road.

Cycle lane starts after the pinch point at the crossing and continues for 5 m. Cycle demonstration towns need examples to show "how NOT to build cycle infrastructure". Cambridge has a lot of them. See also #17371
