What the actual f is an effing toucan crossing?

according to google

A toucan crossing is a type of pedestrian crossing found in the United Kingdom that also allows bicycles to be ridden across. Since two–can, both pedestrians and cyclists, cross together, the name "toucan" was chosen

Who'd have known?

Has the new Prom plan got cycle lanes?

Should be a speed limit on cycles in Strand St of 50max? That'll slow them down!

Harmer is a bonafide f**king idiot. I’m sure they actually want to kill more cyclists with all their stupid plans.

I don’t dislike cyclists it just seems totally mental to put them in potential danger like that to encourage more people to cycle.

Does anyone know the usual outcome or have any recent examples of sending two wheeled travellers the wrong way against the usual traffic direction ?????

I've seen it on the Lezayre road cycle lane a few times!

To be fair cyclists have more experience than other road users (in London for example ) of going the wrong way down one way streets:whistling::flowers:

Everyone seems to think cycling is the answer, they all go to london or Manchester and see all the people cycling around in the inner city...however they fail to realize that the Isle of Man isn’t a city, and most importantly it isn’t FLAT like most cities.  Every where has a hill.

There is no such thing as a one way street for pedestrians and cyclists.

Most likely a reduced number of cyclists with a certain amount of frontal damage to the respective motor vehicles and significant staining and other slight damage to the road surface.
