Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, has suggested that cyclists should be able to turn left at red lights.
For any confused US readers, this is quite a big deal – red lights in the UK mean stop, with no exceptions.
Anyone who risks running one can be hit with a £30 on-the-spot fine, if the bike-bobbies can catch up with them.
Many riders in London risk it and routinely jump reds, but the suggested trial would safely allow them to get clear of any left-turning lorries or buses before the light went green.
That’s a really important thing to be able to do: all cyclist deaths in London so far this year have involved lorries. It’s best to stay well clear of them.
