Nothing to do with traffic schemes holding up ambulances but an example of a **** of a driver.

So you use a car so cycling is not an option at the moment, I get that.
It's the point I was trying to make, not everyone can cycle so whether it's a bus, coach, car, van, lorry or whatever why deliberately make them pollute more than they need to?
I could go on and talk about cycle lanes that cyclists refuse to use, they use the excuse that they don't have to because they are just as entitled to use the roads but we can leave that to another day.

Not all cycle lanes are a problem. Granted it's not many but some seem to work.
The underground doesn't serve my part of London so buses are important and for some people vehicles are a necessity such as the ones mentioned plus tradesmen, social and health workers, small, medium and large businesses etc.
Very few people drive for fun nowadays. I don't enjoy driving, I only do it when it's necessary.
But it's not all about where I live, I made a mistake when naming this thread. I wish I hadn't mentioned London in the title as the problem seems to be spreading.

Thank you for keeping my thread alive.
So when are you going to do the caring thing and stop driving to work?

I'm not uncaring at all. I'm a big fan of bus users - especially in London. When I lived there I would always prefer the bus to the stinky underground. I learned a lot about the local geography by sitting on the buses. I didn't get into interrogation of the other bus users like you do with cyclists, but each to their own eh?

That said, the cycle lanes aren't really the problem. Poor / selfish planning from borough councils and hundreds of londoners who refuse to see any other option than their car even when it would be possible... that's where the problems start isn't it?

Is that a diversion tactic to divert attention away from Mal being uncaring towards those who have no choice but to use the bus.

This is what I ask people.
Do you go to work by bike?
If so do you do it because you enjoy cycling or is it an un-pleasurable task?
Do you feel safe cycling in all weathers.
Is your job physically demanding leaving your tired at the end of your working day
Are you fit, well and with no underlying health conditions.
What age group are you
Do you have somewhere safe and secure to store your bike at work
Do you have changing room facilities.
Do you have somewhere to store and dry wet clothing.
Do you have the basic skills to do minor repairs when out cycling



... and they say the art of conversation is dead.

Have you got a clip-board?

Tut tut Mal you really aren't a caring person are you.
What about those who can't physically cycle and rely on public transport. The old, infirm, disabled and their carers, parents with children, people who haven't the room at home to store a cycle, maybe they live in flats without a lift.
I'm not against cycle lanes if they are used but not if they hold up buses for the above.

Holding up buses in the same lane that you are using if you were driving to school in your car is not good for pollution levels.
Why spend money on creating empty cycle lanes?

Why are so many cycle lanes empty?

Bikes are greener than buses....



And easier to lift past the just stop oil protesters so they dont have to move...- it's a win win

3 buses forced and held up in the traffic lane after the bus lane was given up in favour for two way empty cycle lane on the left.

And plenty of room for a cyclist to use the road.

C'mon Mal where's your hippy credentials. Ok so you can afford to drive but spare a thought for the greener people who use the bus.

Empty in those photos....

The whole road is empty in the top one so plenty of room for the bus?

No queue in the second one so plenty of room for the bus...



I'm being cheeky obviously
