Silly Cyclepaths 002

So this one is a mix of silliness. It’s another short cyclepath that does nothing to make cycling on the road any safer. It ends abruptly before a left turn. Cars are given right of way over cyclists going straight on. There’s the driver who suddenly turns left without signalling. The cyclepath does not start again once past the left turn. Cars park just the other side of the junction creating the hazard of cyclists being doored. Another driver unwittingly demonstrates that for the video.

Just the other day a car turned left and nearly had me off my bike at the end of this cyclepath. The driver had his phone in hand and did not signal. He then got all uppity with me. I guess it’s because <sarcasm>I don’t pay road tax</sarcasm>.
