I road through some roadworks this afternoon. They were there (with temporary lights) for the express purpose of shielding workers (who had already gone) working on a roadside water leak, evidenced by the remaining puddle. We get a lot of leaks in the rural verges around here. I waited for the oncoming car to clear the light, then set off through the red, riding on the “wrong” side of the cones. Heard a blast of horn behind me, not from a following car, but the one going in the opposite direction, presumably complaining about my manoeuvre.
