Constructing meaning from visual images The cycle lane symbol was first defined in the UK's Traffic Sign Regulations in 1982 but since then it has been open to interpretation but sign painters. This has resulted in alot of variation for the cycle lane sign. As I walked down the street I never before realised the variation as they all have the same chacteristics and it has become such a well known sign we simply see the general shape and overlook the details. I think this shows a great strength in the ability of signs and symbols.
