Just curious as to the legality of the road markings on a nearby zebra crossing
- not sure of the exact length of the zig zags either side but lets says they're 8 metres in either direction...
..except one of the four sections of zigzags is several metres shorter in order to accomodate a bus stop
(ie. one side of the road has zigzags one side of the crossing running to around 2 to 3 metres, the other three run to around 8 metres).
I thought the idea of these markings was to limit the risk to pedestrians and yet people can cross behind a bus whos rear end is only a metre or two from the crossing (assuming another bus isn't behind it which is straddling the crossing (as I have witnessed on more than one occasion!)).
Yet if I park opposite the bus stop I'll be on zigzags and so risking a fine and points.
Techincally perhaps not double standards but does seem to smack of it, can anyone offer some clarity please
