Proposal to modify ASL zone - opinions wanted.
Just wondering how cyclists feel about this, so any opinions would be welcome.
I'm sure that ASLs were originally invisaged as an aid for cyclists turning right, and not to facilitate a "massed start" for those cyclists intending to go staight on, all jockying for position, sometimes across the entire width of the ASL.
So, I suggest a visible division within the ASL zone, encouraging cyclists to only place themselves in front of another vehicle if they intend to turn right, but for all other cyclists to remain near the kerb, and no more than two abreast.
The aim would be to enable right turning cyclists to be well to the front of any lorry, and to help minimise conflict between cyclists and other vehicles when travelling straight ahead.
