[Image taken 22.11.22] Burton Stone Lane, York (looking northbound). ‘Traffic calming’ scheme overview and links: #187753. This driver was parked just ahead of the new 'cycle channel'. If someone on a cycle uses these they are sidelined, have no way of controlling the traffic behind them, they are increased risk of being close passed and intimidated for example by a motorist revving an engine. If someone uses the cycle channel, s/he is hemmed in by a motorist parking/stopping at the 'exit' as here. The person on a cycle has much reduced sight lines of what is happening ahead/when it is safe to pass the stopped vehicle. I was able to ride this route and stop and have several conversations with people about the changes yet this vehicle was still there there when I continued my journey northbound.
