I ride through Bath Street daily and am getting cheesed off by the regular occurrence of motor vehicles loading at the southern end of Bath Street. They are a combination of deliveries for the supermarket and other shops on Old Street (north side, east of Bath Street) and mini-cabs waiting to pick-up.

The motors are invariably parked on the southbound (contraflow) cycle lane despite the presence of both a double yellow line and double yellow flashings (meaning no loading). Because of the proximity of the Old Street junction this is particularly dangerous because when you cycle out into the northbound lane to bypass the motor vehicle, you may run into a vehicle entering from Old Street at speed.

How do we get London Borough of Islington to properly enforce waiting and loading restrictions here?
