Photo #194006

[UPDATE: a) The wand was still missing on 19.6.23 when I took new photos here: #195235; b) On 19.5.23 the wand was still where it was in this image. To stop it being an eyesore and possibly a hazard, I took it to Hazel Court (the recycling centre #193086) as I did for the previous one.]

[Image taken 17.5.23] Burton Stone Lane (looking north) York. Context/overview: #187753. Thus far it's been the splitter island at the other end of the measures that's been hit and damaged: #192696, #193043. But I saw today that the wand at the southern end was laying in the cycle channel. I moved it to a protected space where I hoped it was less of a hazard to people moving around not in motor vehicles. Other images today: #194007, #194008, #194009, #194010, #194011, #194013, #194014, #194015.

MY EXPERIENCE: I continue to see drivers enter the pound when someone cycling is already in it... and drive at them. I continue to experience this myself. Both behaviours are the norm so I've stopped documenting them. But to keep a record for reporting to CYC (to try to get these measures removed) here's the most recent... 7.6.23 Mid-afternoon, clear day, me in hi viz, nearly at the far end (other end from this image), a driver crossed into the entry lane and... drove straight at me. I was also close-passed on my journey in both directions outside of the 'traffic calming'. NOTE: The wand is still missing from the block.
