Traffic calming the bike route

That little bike crossing in Montpelier between Richmond Road and Picton Street is dangerous. Bikes heading onto Richmond Road pull out with no warning, and could run into anyone coming down the hill -including other bikes.

The people who care most about this danger appear to Montpelier's 4X4 users, who do their best to control bike speed by blocking the exit. Nobody else nearby cares -they are too selfish, choosing to park near their houses rather than park in a way that would reduce the risk of road accidents and make the district a safe place to walk and cycle -as this Mercedes, H19ODG, is doing.
