Cycle Lanes

Cycle lanes can provide useful and clearly-marked routes for cyclists. They aim to ensure that motorists give cyclist the space they require.

Many routes are however ill thought-out and may even increase the risk of a collision at some junctions.  

LCC supports well-designed cycle routes. It does not however support any measures to force cyclists to use cycle lanes. It believes the city’s roads should be made safer and shared by motorists and cyclists.

LCC also wants to see more enforcement actions against cars and lorries which routinely block cycling lanes. It also believes that there should be enforcement action against motorists who use enter the zones created for cyclists at traffic lights, known as Advanced Stop Lines.

"LCC also wants to see more enforcement actions against cars and lorries which routinely block cycling lanes", so you say but what are you doing to achieve this?  This article was written in 2006 and it's now 2012 and this is still happening.  Clearly LCC is about as much use as a chocolate teapot!
