Cycling in and around Birmingham England
Idiot Car driver (same road, just facing the other way)
Not really. There is no one in the car, and the driver is changing the direction of traffic flow - goes up hill in the morning and downhill in the evening. You can see him appearing to be hiding behind the "Stop" sign.
So, nothing wrong in parking on a double yellow line and blocking a cyclepath?
He's only stopped there to change the sign. Double yellows all round there, so nowhere else to stop, and also he is effectively unloading - only stopped to complete the task.
Its a quiet private road, with a barrier just down the hill. Not really a problem for the cyclist to move out of the lane and into the main road area.
You know, I've been living round the corner from the southgate for nearly 8 years now. Last week was the first time I actually saw someone reversing the polarity of the neutron flow signage.
I bet you he likely did not even stop for the Stop Sign there either.
