Sleeping policemen

I dislike speedbumps. When I am on the hybrid I can cycle over them like a 4×4.

Therein lies the problem. When 4x4s, SUVs or Malone Tractors can drive over a speed bump without slowing down then the Roads Service need to look at alternatives.

Motorised traffic is reduced to a single lane, with citybound traffic yielding to countrybound.
Cyclists can pass on either side, and pedestrians only need to cross one lane of traffic.

Now if Castlereagh Council actually swept the cycle lanes it could almost be perfect.
