[Image taken 20.11.22] Burton Stone Lane, York. Rule 243 of the Highway Code says: DO NOT stop or park: opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space. (www.gov.uk/guidance/the-highway-code/waiting-and-parking-238-to-252) Until a couple of years ago Burton Stone Lane was clear of pavement parking, verge parking and… parking here opposite the junction with Field View. Many people on cycles heading northbound from Bootham (or local streets) use the quieter, less polluted roads close to the railway to avoid Burton Stone Lane. They rejoin it here. The massive increase in the number of motor vehicles using Burton Stone Lane, parking on it, parking on the verges and pavements now makes even getting onto Burton Stone Lane difficult and fraught for cyclists. But also for mobility scooter and wheelchair users who can’t use the pavements – because they are parked on. Or can’t use the most direct route because there are no dropped kerbs or these are blocked by parked cars... Other image today and links: #187780.
