Feigning normality since 1973


Filed in: Tetrap.Local.

Failing to indicate at a roundabout is going to become illegal here. All I can say is it's about time. It's a menace trying to cross the road near a roundabout when you don't know what the traffic is intending to do.

Yesterday, when I was getting lunch, I watched a roundabout near where I work to see if people were properly signalling.

Of the people turning left, the majority signaled. This is pretty much a no-brainer. One or two people didn't bother, of course.

Of the people going straight through, the majority didn't signal at all (you're supposed to signal left when coming off the roundabout).

Of the people turning right, the majority signalled right correctly when turning, but didn't signal left when turning off.

The police'll pick up a fair few $150 fines, I should think...

(I previously complained about this back in 2001, nice to see something's finally being done...)

I never knew you were so impassioned about
traffic issues. Not that you aren't 100% just never sprang out at me
that you felt this strongly about it. :)
