Ethel Austin HGV in ASL
I was cycling along behind this Ethel Austin HGV yesterday morning when I saw it drive into the cyclists-only Advanced Stop Line, at a red light, on South Grove E17. A lawless act for which the driver could be prosecuted - were it not that the car supremacist Metropolitan Police has apparently decided to discriminate against safe cycling by not enforcing this law as a matter of policy.
By the time I'd taken my gloves off, removed my camera from its case, and pressed the button the lights had just changed to green, but I just managed to catch the lorry before it drove off.
