Londoners lambast Olympic traffic lanes

Network of road lanes reserved for athletes and dignitaries raises anger and threats of disobedience.

    It is just three days before the 2012 Olympics start and Londoners are bracing themselves for the opening of the new street lanes.

    The new lanes are sections of the road network reserved exclusively for athletes and dignitaries.

    But some people say the exclusive lanes are unfair, and are threatening to break the law .
