more cycling anarchy in York

As everybody knows, York is a cycling nirvana. The progressive and cycling-friendly council has put in this marvellous cycle path opposite York station, which includes every cyclist’s favourite sign. Station Road in York, southbound. This fabulous infrastructure gives cyclists the exciting opportunity to stop on the footway and press a button which will then allow them to cross the road. (Obviously the timings are set to prioritise motor vehicles.)

And what happens? Here is a typical anarchic cyclist who prefers to ignore this cycling infrastructure and simply make a right turn into the station. Which is typical of the ingratitude of modern cyclists.
