Cycle ways are 'maintained' to varying standards and their use is therefore also variable. Leaves are known to be a hazard, as is gutter detritus, drains, hedges, potholes and dilapidated surfaces. Not to mention parked cars. An experienced and observant road user would know all this.

I had to risk answering your 'trick' question because you seem genuinely to not know the highway code and that could be dangerous for other road users unless it was made clear for you .

It's about time it became law to use these facilities if they're there, keep the roads clear for real vehicles were possible imo

There's no need to be quite so transparently provocative, I'm happy to join in the fun anyway .

Now, might I suggest that in your new law it is specified too that pedestrians only use the facilities provided for them i.e. pavements (no jaywalking allowed) and that vehicles must not park on or enter cycle lanes and that maintaining cycle lanes is properly funded and that all road and bridge schemes incorprate facilities for cycling and walking?

You're mental aren't you?

The roads aren't maintained properly so why should cycle lanes be getting any special treatment and I think they should do more about jaywalking, I'm not a fan of that either.

Re: [Update] Cyclist convicted of "wanton and furious driving"

I saw a combined phone zombie and footpath cyclist just hurtle across a road junction. If a car had been coming to that junction he would be dead or very seriously injured as the driver would have had absolutely no chance of stopping as the malefactor was screened by a wall until the last moment.
