    YES.

    Same with Port/fortified wine. Most people aren't drinking "Port" when they say they are.

    It doesn't really matter if demerit points go up or down for being naughty, if you get too many too soon you're walking!

    And I say "Mow It" because that's what I'm like after I drink it, noisy and all over the ground!

    Yeah I have to go against grain and say I never had a problem with that roundabout... Worked at indro for 2 years, but that was in 03 04 so I assume it's alot busier now!

    I wonder if it's like the inside lane, outside lane thing where there are conflicting beliefs? Inside lane to me is the left lane, outside lane is the right lane but I know not everyone will agree.


    Ha! I lived in the UK for 8 years and that RAB is nothing compared to some over there. Some of the big RABs had traffic lights on all entrances, some had 3 lanes entering and only 2 to exit and then there was my favourite with 2 RABs next to each other. I used to leave work either early or late to miss traffic. I left on time one day and at through 12 changes of traffic lights before I got out of the car park - and that was just another day, nothing special. There was a couple of times I got caught in football (soccer) match times and sat in my car for 2 hours without moving.
    Yes, that's right... My complaint was people who indicate RIGHT when they are going STRAIGHT.

    Come to think of it I dont think I do do this- but I definitely do indicate left when my exit off the roundabout is next. DH does not and I get so cranky with him!

    Edit- I have a great roundabout here in Canberra which causes many an argument- id love to know if you would indicate right when youre going 'straight' on it- the second exit is to the right, but technically it is straight- if that makes sense?? Confuses many many people and has caused many a debate over a beer

    Oh ok
    DF and I disagree about a particular RAB near us. The RAB is on a bend in the road so to go straight ahead the exit isn't straight ahead, it's more to the right. I indicate as if I'm going straight ahead but DF indicates as if he's turning right.

    When being taught how to drive I was told the "second exit" means "straight" so legally you do not need to indicate- however on confusing *** roundabouts like that some people think indicating may be safer but it depends on where the third exit is and if someone may get confused that you are going right and will enter the roundabout and almost cause an accident. This is why I hate roundabouts!!!
