Cyclists To Be Allowed To Turn Left On Red
The Guardian is reporting that Boris Johnston has asked the Department of Transport to allow cyclists to turn left at red traffic-lights, on the grounds that this will allow cyclists to get ahead of vehicle (i.e. lorries) at the junction. Not sure how practical it is, or how much safer it will make the roads, but will be interesting to see what happens. From the quotes in the article it seems CTC have already taken against it.
