[edit] Notes on black spots

[edit] Tram "super stops" on route 109

The tram "super stops" on route 109 have slow, narrow and convoluted bike paths behind them which are unsuitable for cyclists travelling at over 20km/h. If you follow the route the cars take you are forced into the traffic and onto the tram tracks at the same time.

[edit] Traffic chicanes

Some "traffic calming" road treatments such as chicanes often have no provision for cyclists, who are forced into the path of cars travelling in the same direction when they go through them.
