If you indicate to turn right at a roundabout, but there are a few right turns to be made to get round then the indicators might self cancel, but largely it is people not bothering.
Well yes of course! It was meant to be a dig at lazy selfish drivers who just don't bother!!If you indicate to turn right at a roundabout, but there are a few right turns to be made to get round then the indicators might self cancel, but largely it is people not bothering.
Maybe, maybe not. Who knows for sure?I would say you are largely preaching to the converted here…
So you should have been in the right hand lane correct? But the other driver left the scene of an accident naughty. Yes the junction thing is another thing about signalling, these drivers including us must have used indicators when taking driving test to have passed, but then slipped into their own ideas about driving politeness! D4KGP. (Rest in peace TINA)I have just had to submit my defence statement for an upcoming court hearing. I arrived at a roundabout (not been on the road before) to find that I should have been in the right hand lane rather than the left one. I looked in the mirror and the only car in a visible distance was a distance back, I indicated with the right hand indicator that my intention was to carry on round to the second exit. The car that was behind me overtook me and left via the first exit clipping my front offside sufficiently hard to cause it to be written off. The other driver didn’t stop immediately and I had to follow her until she did stop, she admitted that they were in a hurry and hadn’t seen my indicators. 😈
The opposite scenario is that every morning when going to work I need to make a right turn at a T junction. Very little traffic is coming from the left but a continuous flow from the right, virtually none of the cars coming from the right indicate that they are turning up the road that I am on or if they do it’s a last minute thought.
Best of luck with your claim. Regards D4KGP.I should have been in the right hand lane, I simply misread the first signpost, I am sure thousands do it every day. The point is that the other driver was behind me but in the right hand lane, being in a hurry they either didn’t see my signal or decided to overtake on the roundabout before I got to the first exit.
My insurance company is offering a 50/50 split, the other driver’s company doesn’t accept any liability at all. I work in the construction industry and my machine weighs seventeen tonnes with just 85 bhp so I am courteous to other drivers on my continual commuting between site and compound. I travel about 400 metres each way with two T junctions. First a left then a right turn on a main road, with so little power it is difficult to get up to 10mph. So I sit and wait for oncoming drivers to pass by only for them to turn off without indicating.
