[Image taken 12.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The woman on her own is in the blind corner of the steep slope down from Scarborough Bridge. The two pedestrians in the background, moving sociably and comfortably, take up the available space. ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A very steep slope leads to/from Scarborough Bridge. To get up a slope on a cycle you need a runup and to be positioned correctly. Wider, longer cycles (see: #165610), and those with trailers ( ... [more]

[Image taken 1.5.21] Marygate car park, York. From this: #166422 and this: #157641 to this. Image showing what we’ve lost (to car parking). The width is now 330cm. But that’s the actual not the usable width. The usable width is a maximu ... [more]

Update: far worse encroachment at this ASL see: #168510 and link. [Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Encroachment into the ASL is common. This example is a minor infringement. It shows the blind corner t ... [more]
