As you are a driving instructor could you tell me if it is now the policy to teach people not to indicate right on a roundabout but to indicate left to leave? The reason I ask is nearly everyone seems to be doing it - even traffic cars.

Also there seems to be a massive increase in the number of people who will turn right on a roundabout in the left hand lane.

Yeah - what the f**ks that all about. I know several roundabouts where the lane markings have now been changed so you can turn right in the left lane and can't got straight over in the right lane because there were so many accidents where people in the right lane crossing the roundabout collided with people in the left lane turning right!

have you actually done anything constructive to make your complaints known to your elected representatives... or are you just going to blame blair and the govrnment as usual. i know the rib net membership is diverse but i havent noticed any mp's or councellors amongst us so you wasting your time moaning here...

Again, even if it's a bad law campaign to change it but don't think you're above the law
