Proportionally or in absolute terms? I'd be surprised either way. Anyway, buses jump more red lights than any other vehicle.

Photographic evidence please
We intend to be producing a few more 'action shots' within the next few weeks, so if you are a cyclist, beware

The cyclists at Stockwell Cross seem to be behaving themselves better thees days - I'd say about 1 in 30 goes through the red.

What time do you normally go through?
And can you give me a lift to work?
I work just close to that part of Theobald's Road where you got done by a camera last year for an illegal right turn.

I've noticed this on The Strand too. Perhaps it has something to do with previous assaults and myself bouncing on my toes with cocked fists willing some sucker to go through the lights whilst I'm crossing so I can bring them down.
Either way it's much better.

Well, as a cyclist and a driver, I'm not sure that I would. In my experience most motor vehicles tend to stop at red lights even if there is nothing coming in the direction with priority. Where motorists misbehave is by continuing through the lights as or shortly after they change to red. Cyclists who jump red lights will do so when there's nothing coming, not (usually) because the lights are in the course of changing and they think they can make it - accelerating and decelerating are different on a bike. I always stop at red lights because it's a good habit to get into, whether on a bike or in a car (he said smugly). It also means you're likely to live longer, on the whole, and not have to pay fines for ignoring traffic signals or driving carelessly. (The ar*ehole in a Golf who ran a red light on Trinity Road this morning and nearly ran me over in consequence - I was on foot - would do well to take note...)

Indeed it is and I don't condone it at all. I like cycling and I think motorists should be careful around bikes - and each other - which would exclude going through lights that have just changed to red.

I work all over the south, but I have a very good customer in Theobald's Road and am in there quite often.

As for a lift to work, I ALWAYS have a passenger in my van, or how else would I be able to take photographs legally without upsetting SteveK

My missus got hit by a cyclist scum going through a Zebra crossing when she was crossing a few years back.
If I was there I would've ended his life. She was a mess of blood and grazes afterwards whilst he cycled off.

As much as you may think they deserve it, I really wouldn't fancy squashing one, it just might affect me.
