I've often reasoned that a cyclist RLJing would by virtue of his/her vulnerability not do so in the face of traffic crossing on the opposite green light but would only do so when the opposing road is clear and safe
I've absolutely no reason to doubt it from an experience/logic sense - I guess I just wanted to confirm it matches any official source. (I tried google .. to no avail ... )
[2 birds 1 stone/scone: motorists bang on about RLJ, and recently a few have started banging on about cyclists endangering pedestrians ]
Nothing endangers pedestrians more than motors that's a fact.
Cyclist/pedestrian collisions are few and deaths as a result practically non existent.
I'm convinced that the loudest voices in the motoring fraternity won't be happy until cyclists are banned from the roads entirely and they'll work to that end by hook or by crook.
