139765Photo #139765Pavement is extended several feet out into carriageway just past bus stop. I have seen vehicles collide with this as it is completely unexpected, and unnecessary. Each time I cycle past this location I am still shocked at how easily missed this hazard is. It frightens me to think I might collide with it one day!Track:
