Remove Cycle Lanes from London's Roads

Honestly this just makes me even more cross than before.  I travelled up Park Lane today and saw that they have now changed 4 lanes (incl bus lane) into 2 lanes for cyclists and 1 lane for the buses, leaving just 1 lane for cars. I used to travel in a car everyday for work for 3 years from SE London to NW, during the peak traffic times and saw MAX 6 maybe 7 cyclists on Park Lane, today we 2 cycle lanes and NO CYCLISTS NOT EVEN ONE!!!!! Cant see this changing ever. Realistically do YOU think that Londoners will stop driving? I dont think so, there are TOO many higher class people who won't care about paying a fine. If in 2041 it will become 80% a city just for public transport, foot and cyclists, what about the people living in Central London, there are definitely more than 20% of population in London living in Central London? Can you see the Queen on a bicycle?  No. I understand completely that cycle lanes should be present in London but not to the degree that there are more cycle lanes than car lanes!!!!!! Like the post says there are not enough cyclists to warrant this.  Where does the money come from? The people who pay ROAD TAX. Do cyclists pay this? No its the people who drive the cars. You say 200% increase on Lower Thames Street but yet statistically it says that there was actually a decrease in cyclicts from 184,000 in 2016 to 162,000 in 2017.  Strangely you don't mention this. Your ideas are unrealistic.

 

I wanted to getta petition going, I know there are a lot of people who are getting angry with the Mayor's idea of creating a 'Greener' London.

I think the idea of cycle lanes are good, keeps them off the road with cars and creates a safer place for them and the motorists however the drastic measures implemented recently is effecting motorists to such an unnecessary extreme! I travelled up Park Lane today and saw that they have now changed 4 lanes (incl bus lane) into 2 lanes for cyclists and 1 lane for the buses, leaving just 1 lane for cars. I used to travel in a car everyday for work for 3 years from SE London to NW, during the peak traffic times and saw MAX 6 maybe 7 cyclists on Park Lane, today we 2 cycle lanes and NO CYCLISTS NOT EVEN ONE!!!!! Cant see this changing ever. Realistically do you think that Londoners will stop driving? I dont think so, there are TOO many higher class people who won't care about paying a fine.

As we all know the Mayor is trying to make London a city 80% just for cyclists, public transport and people on foot by 2041 and what about the people living in Central London. Can you see the Queen on a bicycle? I dont think so. I understand completely that cycle lanes should be present in London but not to the degree that there are more cycle lanes than car lanes!!!!!! How much pollution is this causing, cars sitting in traffic for more than an hour will have an impact no matter what the Mayor says.

More importantly, where does the money come from? The people who pay ROAD TAX. Do cyclists pay this? No. Has the Mayor ever suggested that the cyclists contribute to Road Tax? No. So how can the drivers feel comfortable with the idea of having more cyclists be on the road? Especially as cyclists are becoming more aggressive on the roads and these people are having the support of the Mayor, ridiculous!!!!!

After doing some research a came across a post last year from Sadie Khan where it says there has been a 200% increase on Lower Thames Street but yet statistically it says that there was actually a decrease in cyclicts from 184,000 in 2016 to 162,000 in 2017. Strangely this was not mentioned.
