Red Light Jumpers in London

TfL gathered some data about red light jumping cyclists in London.

This data has been dug up from the 2012 archives possibly in response to the recent hidden-camera footage of cyclists jumping reds (http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/cyclists-filmed-jumping-red-lights-in-london-taxi-drivers-hidden-camera-footage-8969043.html)

While heavily-edited footage gathered by disgruntled taxi drivers hardly constitutes scientific evidence, it remains true that cyclists in London need to clean up their act if they want to maintain the moral high ground and support their case for decent infrastructure.

The following video illustrates some related issues:

    I live in Idaho in the U.S. and it’s the only state that has a law (Stop Law) that permits cyclists to jump a light as long as they stop first, the road is clear and we yield to on coming traffic. It works very well for us and no injuries occur. It makes cycling very convenient when there isn’t cross traffic and we don’t have to wait.
