This cycle lane is repeatedly obstructed by drivers who come down Howard Road E17 and halt in the KEEP CLEAR section of the carriageway on Forest Road when the lights are at red. In so doing they prevent cyclists from accessing the Advanced Stop Line.
Drivers do this because (i) they want to be sure of their position in the queue when the lights change to green (ii) the KEEP CLEAR sign on the road surface is advisory, not legally enforceable
(iii) these drivers have no consideration or awareness of cyclists, and no respect for cycle lanes, only concern for their own interests.
Anti-social behaviour. It's funny how that term is never applied to motorists.
