Those things are potentially lethal if you don't block any attempt to overtake, and we all know the occasional idiot will try to knock you out of the way or start a fight 'cos you haven't paid enough tax to slow his journey time by 3 seconds. My old works commute was like a series of sprint intervals along Old Whittington High Street, with a series of climbs at either end. Gave up in the finish and used the canal instead for the sake of an extra 10 minutes.
There's a particularly annoying one on my morning commute. It was plonked there in conjunction with a new "facility".
I can squeeze past the others on the hill when the cagers have clogged the road, but this one is particularly large and sharp-edged.
It's really only a problem when I filter and I confess I sometimes deliberately ride the wrong side of it - the only time I would ever do such a thing.
