A simple note to all those cyclists in Aberdeen City Centre that seem to think the new pavement extensions are a cycle lane for their use - they are not!
They are PAVEMENT extensions, and BY LAW, that means you do not cycle in them !
There is a simple reason for this law. It is so you do not kill someone by mowing them down.
I note Aberdeen City Council have posted yellow notices to this effect (see photo). Well done ACC. However as with all Council regulations, they are as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike unless they are enforced. Which they never are.
Interestingly, 1 minute after taking this photo, a speeding cyclist whizzed up the side of me as I ambled in the extension.
Clearly, some cyclists neither care or can read.
