Misleading signs

Reported via iOS in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category by Graham Smith at 22:55, Thursday 11 July 2019

Sent to Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 1693451.

In St Ebbes, south of Queen St, a noticeable couple of yellow signs declare ‘Pedestrian Zone’ and a no-parking symbol. Adjacent to Halifax Bank a small blue sign indicates a shared path. (I’m not sure if the arrow is a one-direction only sign, it’s ambiguous too)(the no5 on a red background is opaque in meaning).

Since the City Council has apparently decided to not reinstate the cycle symbol on the ground, the presence of people cycling leads to confusion and sometimes dispute for both pedestrian and cyclist.

The yellow sign needs to have a ‘cycling permitted’ adjunct. This would better conform with stated City and County policies.
