Soddin' cyclists don't do themselves any favours. 5pm today (ie dark) I approached a roundabout and only just spotted a cyclist coming around it with no lights (I didn't stop, there was enough gap for me to keep going). Further up the road there was a cyclist coming the other way with a bus up his back side, the cyclist was only visible because he had a flashing headlamp... but he was dressed in black with black gloves and using hand signals to turn right that we're not visible at all until I went by!
It's like they are not aware of the accident statistics.
Bike reserved boxes? That's nothing. Many drivers seem to ignore the stop line these days, think it's OK to roll a yard or two over it and then stop (maybe).
Info: by definition, if your green is an arrow there is no other traffic permitted to cross your path at that time. If it is an ordinary "round" light there may be oncoming traffic to give way to.One thing I find dangerous is those crossings where the two oncoming streams have different traffic light settings. Turning right at one of those, you are never sure whether the oncoming cars are jumping the red light or are still on green, when the light in front of you is red and you are in the middle of the junction.

Fair enough, and for anybody unsure you are allowed to proceed even if the red has turned against you if you are over the stop line when it was green.I am talking about when I am still mid-junction and my round green has become a round red!
If the only way to make progress across a junction (when you have the legal right) is to force other drivers to respect your right of way, then you just have to do it.
