Cyclists ignore 'death trap' zebra crossings in London

Telegraph, 18 Mar 2023
Sadiq Khan's "death trap" bike lane zebra crossings see just one in ten cyclists stop.

The Mayor of London has overseen a proliferation of the Copenhagen-style scheme, where busy cycle lanes are wedged between the pavement and a bus stop island, with a zebra crossing bridging the two.

This is despite Mr Khan and Transport for London being repeatedly warned in their own reports that the majority of cyclists refuse to stop or slow down at these crossings.
