  1. Oh dear!

    There lies a problem, which I guess from the pictures, nobody is doing anything to tackle.

    Isn’t a mandatory lane as good as a double yellow line???

  2. @Ian: Sure is.

    Highway Code: “You MUST NOT drive or park in a cycle lane marked by a solid white line during its times of operation. Do not drive or park in a cycle lane marked by a broken white line unless it is unavoidable.”

    But then again…

  3. Blue paint is very good for hiding structural problems.

    Still, it’s more than Ken ever managed with his chauffeur-driven limo.

  4. Can someone – a cycling organisation, or something (I know Resonance don’t have a lot of money) – get some annoyingly large (15-20cm across) and difficult-to-remove stickers distributed, with something scathing or embarrasing printed on them?

    A friend in Lyon carries stickers like that. Any time he sees someone parked in an antisocial manner, they get one slapped in the middle of the driver’s side of their windscreen.

  5. @Wilson: Thanks for your comment. What you suggest sounds like it might be counterproductive and run the risk of breaking the law (graffiti? defacement of private property?). This is a more subtle solution that gets the point across just as well.
