Allow “Except Cyclists” on “No entry” signs

Comment 4th August 2010

Do away with the DfT rule which prevents the siting of "Except Cyclists" signs being mounted along with "No Entry" signs.  This would effectively allow more opportunities for contraflow cycling (where appropriate) in currently one way streets.

Why does this matter?

More people cycling in towns brings so many benefits – reduced congestion, noise & air pollution and CO2 levels; increased health & fitness and social cohesion.  Allowing cyclists to ride in more contraflow situations would make their journeys often more realistic than forcing them to ride amongst motorists in one-way systems.  It would encourage more people to cycle and there is safety in numbers.
