Cycle-pathic tendencies


I agree with John Edwards (NCE 20 June) that wheelchair and pram users should not be squeezed for the comfort of a few cyclists.

However, some attempts to provide for cyclists are worse than useless. Many cyclists have lost patience with 'give way' markings on pavements every 50m or so, and 'dismount' signs at any conceivable hazard.

Motorists reluctantly accept that they have to tolerate cyclists on the carriageway.

That tolerance is being eroded by the perception that alternative facilities have been provided.
