    Default derby city center

    well went through the center of derby today for the first time in a few months and it boggled my mind!!! came from pride park and when i saw the **** pit island my mind just melted, it seemed traffic was going both ways on the roundabout. as i got ontop of the roundabout i saw the new changes and hoped i chose the right way, luckily i had got it right and was soon on my way, hopefully they will open all the roads soon so the traffic can actually move, i know it was going to take its time doing the roadworks but its just annoying.

    I HATE Derby town centre! I drive professionally, I can cope quite happily with Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Nottingham...even London doesn't faze me too much. But every single time I try to navigate around Derby, I get lost.

    The signposting is some of the worst I have ever seen - it's specially designed only to apply to people who already know where they're going!
