Highway code for pedestrians:
Section 21: “You should only start to cross the road when the green figure shows.”
That’s should not must.
Highway code for cyclists:
Section 80: “Toucan crossings. These are light-controlled crossings which allow cyclists and pedestrians to share crossing space and cross at the same time. They are push-button operated. Pedestrians and cyclists will see the green signal together. Cyclists are permitted to ride across.”
Section 81: “Cycle-only crossings. Cycle tracks on opposite sides of the road may be linked by signalled crossings. You may ride across but you MUST NOT cross until the green cycle symbol is showing.”
This implies that at toucan crossings it’s OK for cyclists to cross on a red man/cycle.]]>
