    OK then, if you have a cycle lane marked on the road, and a car is parked next to the kerb, is this not illegal as it's blocking a right of way ? Surely he / she should be parking up to the solid white line leaving the cycle lane clear, if it blocks the traffic flow then they shouldn't be parking there any way.

    Opinions please.

    I'm quite happy if cars park in cycle lanes, I don't want to use them anyway. ;)

    Gasman Old enough to know better, too old to care!

    If the cycle lane is marked by a dotted line then it's only advisory and it's not illegal for cars to park in them.
     
  4. If the cycle lane is defined by a dotted white line motorists are free to ignore it.

    If it's a Cycle Lane motorists are free to ignore it.... or maybe it just seems that way. ;)
