Olympic Game Lane

I was a great friend of Olympic Games, and basically still am, even have some tickets. But what is done on our London streets is outrageous, I would say illegal. How can our elected authorities hand over part of our roads, paid by our taxes, to corrupt, bribe taking IOC officials, and profit maximising sponsors CEOs.

Yes, I am affected in my daily commute, and yes, I am very angry.

I hope this stupid idea will only lead to chaos, but I fear it will lead to injury if not death. Squeezing all road participants (bicycles, motorcylcles, cars, taxi’s, busses, trucks) into a single lane will lead to a warzone, specially if in their Zil lane the BMW driven official cars by the happy Olympic family will not even need to observe city speed limits. They are clearly above the law, and that is very wrong.

I am labelled NOT a member of the Olympic Family, having to pay 130 GBP fines each time I use their reserved lane.

Looking at these Game Lanes, and having watched Wimbledon and their hawk eye system, I have one question to my dear readers:

When did I actually use the game lane?

Look at these 3 scenarios:

No, its not about the leg, but the rear tire. If I still touch the white line (B), am I safe? And what proof does the city warden need to provide, his “memory” or a photo?

Please advise.

And if you are a specialist (or policeman) here some more questions:

Can I venture into the Game lane for some seconds to evade a collision with a bicycle or white van? How long may I stay in it? What proof do the authorities have to provide? Video? And in case of a mechanical breakdown, can I stop on this lane?

As I said: I hope only chaos will result, not injury and death.

    Please let me know if this okay with you. Thanks!

  2. No, because bicycles and white vans are banned from these lanes!
