Bike lanes

Bike lanes are...

broken glass magnets
extra car parking spaces
loading/unloading spaces for van couriers
motorbike highways
extra undertaking space for cars, who also need not signal when using
a safe place for you/your pram/your grandmother to stand while attempting to cross the road
exactly the same size as an open car door, especially when they are placed right by a taxi rank
pedestrianised zones if placed on a pavement
incomprehensible to road users if they happen to be contra-flow

I fucking hate bike lanes

Damn right. They are also perfectly safe to step into without looking, because they don't actually exist, they're just figments of someone's imagination, and there's no way a bike could possibly come down a bike lane, oh no. Don't even think a bike might be coming, just cross!
