You should indicate if you are going left or right.

This used to be broadcast as a public information film on TV many years ago.

I'd suggest that there are more collisons at roundabouts than at any junction in the country - all because people are now 'allowed' to do what they want provided they indicate their intentions. And most of those would be by foreign drivers who don't understand.


That's the way I was taught KE but I think new drivers are taught to indicate right when going straight on. I agree it's bloody annoying.

Thank you Argyll, that's how I feel about it.

That's the way I was taught too. (Unless road markings or signs indicate otherwise)


Wiltshire highway code....Priority to the right-Except in Trowbridge!

I was thinking of this post yesterday when I took my mate to Sheffield to collect his new car. On the way back near Manchester I had to get in the right hand lane at a roundabout, so I did, there were cars in front and behind me. There were lights on the roundabout and two cars in front of me got stopped by the red light, when I set off two cars that joined from one of the junctions to my left decided to cut right in front of me as they were going right.

Do these fecking idiots not understand "give way to vehicles already on the roundabout" ::b

If there were no lights on the roundabout it would not have been a problem. I'm just glad that not many roundabouts near me have lights on them as they cause nothing but problems.

Are you sure that is in the highway code? (I am sorry to not agree with you on that one)

I don't have a copy of the highway code, but when I passed my test in 1990 I'm sure that was in the highway code.

It does not actually say it on this page, but it says it in the video- http://www.highwaycodeuk.co.uk/news-and ... oundabouts

in south shields theres a round about near the tyne dock round about. its at the bottom of temple park road. drive along temple park road and there is a straight ahead arrow in both lanes at the end and the left hand arrow has an arrow to the left also. the straight ahead is actually sort of to the right going around the round about but there is only 3 possible exits. left. straight ahead and a u turn.

the amount of people that go in the right hand lane and then cut across is unbeleivable with even police cars doing this. i was actually almost wiped out by apolice car doing exactly this. so the driver got a good blast of the horn and a flash of the lights. d*ck.

ive even had people in the right hand lane then try to go left....

maybe south shields has the shittest drivers in the world though
