Two way driving on one way streets

You really have to take care at junctions in Manchester, because you never know when a car is going to emerge the wrong way from a side road...

It seems that the local drivers don't take much notice of one way streets round here, particulally around Deansgate.

And this one was by the Council House...

Still, it demonstrates two way working of one way streets, something that can now be done on these streets for bicycles with minimum cost.

  1. The first one is a taxi. Apparently they can get some free pass to allow them to drive wherever they want as long as they are in working mode. It's all about "smoothing traffic flow" or some such initiative.
