Code & thoughts
1 We share bus lanes with other vulnerable road users, take extra care around them. - Okay
2 Be aware of pedestrians walking through traffic queues and at bus stops. - Okay
3 Look out for pedal cycles and give them a wide berth, they may suddenly change direction or position. Okay, but they have a responsibility to look as per highway code before changing direction as well
4 Pass cyclists on the offside only - never undertake. - Okay
5 Always assume cyclists cannot hear or see you behind them. - Okay, but they should not 'sqeeze' past at lights either
6 Do not use excessive speed when using bus lanes or overtaking cyclists. No Probs - most are in 30 zones anyhow
7 Do not overtake each other. Normally okay
8 Watch out for other vehicles at junctions and side roads - Doh!
9 Take extra care when riding alongside congested pavement areas - Normal practice, and remember to watch out for cyclists rejoining the road after skipping up on pavement
10 We are ambassadors for motorcycling, riding in a bus lane is a privilege that needs to be respected. As are the roads, that's why we have licenses, tax and insurance...
Hopefully will be a sucess and cyclists will remember they have a duty to others as well, and must obey the lights...
