Overranking taxis on St Andrews Street in Cambridge force buses right over to the other side of the road bringing them into conflict with cyclists travelling the other way.

Taxi AG04 LCN with license 1051 parked in contra-flow cycle lane with double yellow line. So much about professional drivers.
