    Default Stupid muppets

    Approaching a roundabout with two lanes indicating right, the roundabout has one exit to the left, one straight ahead (rejoining the same road, so no need for anyone to use it from this road), and two exits to the right

    Two cars in front of me both in the left hand lane, one ahead slow moving braking for the roundabout with no indication, the car behind that is indicating left

    Arrive at the roundabout still indicating right, traffic is now clearing so I am able to enter the roundabout
    However the first car is now directly to my left, so I pull well over to the right, and it speeds up keeping to my left
    Further round the roundabout, now cleared the second exit so now indicating to the left and this car is still directly to my left, so I slow down, but they also slow down and still indicating

    So I floor it, but this car tries to keep up and enters the same exit there isn't quite a full car length behind my car forcing me to stop this time, but they too also stop
    So I floor it again, but this was too much for their car and they couldn't keep up
    Throughout, no indication

    I am now a good ten car lengths ahead and the car has its full beam on...

    This is not the first time I have seen this, but usually the car in the left hand lane realises they should have been in the right hand lane so allows cars in the correct lane to pass before also entering the centre of the roundabout and following

    Cumbernauld roundabouts are a law unto themselves though. The roundabout at Old Inns/Westerwood/A80 slip is a great example:

    Left lane for left turn (1st exit) and right lane for straight ahead (2nd exit) and turning right (3rd exit)?

    I was always taught that the left lane was for left turns and straight ahead (1st and 2nd exits) and the right lane was for turning right (3rd & 4th exits).

    Some just love their chance to duke in. You find it's the same ********s who sit at Green lights for 5 seconds after they have changed. This is also the same numpty who sits on the outside (right hand ironically) lane of the motorway when there is a distance of 3 football pitches between them and the car infront and nothing on their inside.

    Very much so, almost all of them are exempt from the alignment requirements (the only new town in Scotland to obtain this exemption)
