Rules are made to be broken and lines are drawn to be crossed. Or so it feels in Dublin, where cyclists tend to cross the line while they are waiting on red, even if it means they increase the chance of being hit by passing cars.
See for example The Red Light Proceeders, The Mid-Junction Waiters and a few other examples here, here, here and also here.
In the case of the photo above, I like the arrowhead shape the cyclists created unintentionally. I honestly don't understand why the cyclist in the middle bothers to wear a reflective jacket and put a helmet on. Stopping two metres behind would raise her survival chances far better.
I took this picture on 24 April 2012 in Ringsend.
