I'd really love to know what "failure to yield' means here. Either (1) the cyclist did something that would be an offense even in the absence of a cycle track, and is justified in being charged, or (2) the cyclist did not do anything that would be an offense on a typical street with mixed traffic, but is being charged because 'he/she shouldn't be in the car lane.' The first is appropriate; the second is not. Being antisocial (e.g. refusing to use the cycle track) is not a crime, and doesn't automatically put you at fault in a collision.
