- Even worse than outside lane on a dual carriageway drivers!
I’ll tell you what’s worse. Bloody pedestrians, grown adults I’m referring to, not kids, who press the button on a pedestrian crossing even though there’s no cars for miles around. Has the skill to cross a road completely left these people?? I abhor these lazy feckers who, by the time I’ve approached the (changing to) red light, are safely across the other side of the road. Scum I tell thee. Down with this type of thing.Posted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
That’s the exact wording in the Highway Code.
Afraid not. Here’s the exact quote for you;
Cyclists are only permitted to go through a pedestrian crossing on a red light if they are wearing BeenBag clothing. And Axo Pony boots. Oh, and if they’re doing a Switzerland Squeaker as they go through the crossing. With their back wheel removed, obvs.
edit> ignore me, the garish trousers confused me, no handed versions WTF?
I always press the button on the ped/horse/cycle crossing on my commute coz it takes a ****ing age before it actually does anything, by which time I may or may not have crossed. First 2 cars will drive through the red anyway to make up for it.Posted 4 years ago
Where I live traffic is really busy…I cycle up one street to a junction and want to turn right. A constant stream of traffic means I can never turn right. I cycle 20m to a pelican crossing on the pavement and press the button. It’s not on a timer the traffic stops almost immediately. I cycle half over the crossing and then ride away up the (by now) empty half of the road.Posted 4 years ago

how? where? who do I have to **** to get one of these? Every pelican crossing I currently know of waits an aeon before the lights change or are part of a traffic light cycle where you have to opt in to get a go and if you press the button too late even if it’s still before your turn in the cycle it skips you and you have to wait an entire cycle until your turn comes around again.Posted 4 years ago
