    Cycle lane road signs and markings – Tips from IAM RoadSmart

    New powers have been granted to local councils to enforce cycle lanes – but do you know your road markings? Ignorance of the law is no defence, so with new bicycle facilities popping up all over our towns and cities at the moment, as cycling is encouraged to ease pressure on public transport during the Coronavirus pandemic, it is now more important than ever to know where and when you can park. Cars or motorcycles illegally parked on mandatory cycle lanes can force cyclists to deviate from their path and put them at risk of conflict with passing vehicles. From today (22 June 2020) councils can use CCTV vans to record offences. Neil Greig, IAM RoadSmart’s Director of Policy and Research, therefore offers some top tips to help brush up your knowledge and ensure you know the rules of the road around cycle lanes and where you are allowed to park.
