Cycle Lanes – A Blessing Or A Curse?
If you watch this video, you’ll see one of these riders come into a bit of trouble whilst trying to navigate a roundabout, signal appropriately and follow the cycle lane at the same time. Luckily, no one get’s injured here but if both cyclist and driver reacted a second later, it could’ve been a very different story.
The car driver is clearly at fault but the blame can’t be placed in just one area; if you look at the road markings, it’s difficult to tell whether that cycle lane is really the safest way to navigate through that roundabout.
It might be the safest way, it might not be but we think that Canterbury City Council may want to rethink that cycle lane or at least provide adequate signage to give motorists a little more warning about what’s going on there… What do you think?
