Re: Of course it is always the motorists fault

I feel sorry for the passengers in the Cabs, paying through the nose for the delay caused by the cyclists.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Reminds me of a colony of ants having been disturbed going in all directions. They are little pests as well.Roll_eyes

Re: Of course it is always the motorists fault

Why does this street actually have no motorists on it?

Just bicycles, taxis & pedestrians.

Re: Of course it is always the motorists fault

I seem to recognise the location but can't quite put my finger on it. I thought Piccadilly Circus but not sure when I see some of the shops.

 

It's a good video to use in efforts to make cyclists more accountable.

Re: Of course it is always the motorists fault

I think its becoming quite clear that cyclists are going to have to be licenced soon if they want to use the public highway like they are in some european countries. That video is utter madness.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Just another regrettable symptom of modern (non) policing.  Sad

It's Regent Street just before Piccadilly Circus:

Re: Of course it is always the motorists fault

I was wondering if it was some sort of protest, or just posed for their own camera, as some of the cyclists looked like they appeared more than once.

Or maybe all cyclists look the same to me.

That's not a racial slur against cyclists is it?Tongue

Thanks Mav. I still don't recognise the shop on the left. It doesn't ring a bell Smiley

Re: Of course it is always the motorists fault

Maybe it's about time bikes were electronically tagged somehow, they are road users after all and should be subject to regulations like ever other user. Any jumping the lights like that and they would be electronically 'pinged' and a fine sent to the registered owner.

Re: Of course it is always the motorists fault

There is disruption by "protesting" cyclists in London on the last Friday of each month but if the timestamp on that video is correct it was recorded on Saturday 22nd October.
