The Mid-Junction Waiters
For some reason, it is quite common in Dublin to see cyclists crossing the white line and wait in the middle of the junction (in case they bother to stop on red at all). I see no advantage whatsoever for this bike positioning. On the contrary, they put themselves at the risk of being knocked down by cars.
For example, I took the photo above on 14 October 2009 shortly before 9:00am near Christ Church cathedral. Why is it so hard to wait for the green light three metres behind?
