The contra-flow cycle lane on York Hill makes an ideal place to park! On my way back I spotted a van and 2 cars on there but couldn't be bothered photographing them! Parking on contra-flows is particularly dangerous because the cyclist has to pull out to face oncoming traffic.
New Road is Brighton's Euro-style experiment of getting cars, taxis, cycles and pedestrians sharing the same space, with no road markings or signs. I hope they don't leave that fearsome step up onto the new blocks!
Rows of cobbles designed to knobble the unwary cyclist seem to be springing up all over the place. On Providence Place, just by St Barts church, our council has laid these cobbles. What are they for? They clearly don't calm cars, but are a hazard to cyclists using this as a quiet route from Preston Circus to the North Laine. Ironically, because of the road camber, the middle section where the cars go is relatively lower! They are also to be found on Ann Street.
