Bus lanes and cycle lanes are commonplace in Brighton and Hove – but now a practical joker has created the city’s first skateboard lane.
For every bicycle mark along the Hove Lawns cycle lane, a skateboard mark has been painted to match it.
The markings were spotted by keen Brighton cyclist Clive Andrews, who posted this picture of them on Twitter.
He praised the “markings for tiny-wheeled plank users” saying “I think it’s pukka.”
Fellow Twitter user @seasons_sitcom, discussing who has priority in the lane, cyclists or skateboarders, joked: “The law is thus: if the skater is aged 20+ ask them to do a trick. If they can’t they must make way #.”
However, any tiny-wheeled plank users should get down quick if they want to use it.
A council spokesman said: “These are not official markings and we will be arranging for them to be removed to avoid any confusion, as the cycle lane is intended for cyclists only.”
