I Dundee we have cycle lanes running up the side of the kerbs good idea you may think but they prove to have made no difference whatsoever.Car driver's still drive on them and when they park their cars they park on top of the bike lanes thereby making the cyclists drive round them into the traffic.Cyclists must take some of the blame for their own safety I used to drive myself and was often horrified to come round a corner and find a group of them lined up across my lane completely unaware they were endangering their lives.I came to the conclusion that cyclists are a menace and they ought to be banned.Just recently a person walking on the pavement was killed when a car swerved to avoid a bunch of cyclists and mounted the kerb.
