DHL, G4S and Unichem vans park in bike lanes

Since these companies are repeat offenders, I'd like to let the internet know that DHL, G4S and Unichem vans park in bike lanes. Specifically, the contraflow bike lane on Northgate in Darlington. Bikes heading north out of town have to cross into the one way traffic coming the other way, risking being hit by busses.

This photo was taken a while ago. This morning was the same, but with a DHL van and G4S van parked further down the bike lane.

Update 26/06/2007: Just Unichem and DHL this morning...

C'mon Mike, you have an empty pavement to your right, why not use it! You do want to ride in the Phart, dont you?

These vans are there for about 10 mins early in the morning, they have to park there to make deliveries.

Anyway cycling should (hopefully will)be banned from the Phart.

Darlo blogger clearly understands what a contra-flow cycle lane is....when I cycle on it, there is a road full of buses to my right, not an empty pavement.

Ah, but what's the difference when you don't give a toss about encouraging sustainable transport.
