Cambridge cyclists have complained of impolite warning signs in the area.

Across the city, "cyclists dismount" signs are installed, but Cambridge Cycling Campaign believes that they should be more courteous and mindful of pedestrians, according to

Simon Nuttall, the campaign's events officer, told the website: "In the world of cycling the 'cyclists dismount' sign is amongst the most annoying. There's no equivalent for motorists suggesting 'get out and push'."

Mr Nuttall went on to say that the sign is advisory, meaning that the rider does not legally have to dismount. Because of this, it should be more polite and say something that equates to "be nice".

Earlier this month, the Leicester Mercury reported that safety signage is to be improved on roads in Leicestershire.

The move has been made as nearly 300 crashes have happened at 20 accident blackspots in the last three years, so the council is introducing speed limits, signs and street lighting to tackle the issue. ADNFCR-2754-ID-801075666-ADNFCR
