Mini-roundabouts have feelings too…

8 09 2014

I have discovered a problem that seems to effect a lot of drivers in my local area.

It could be down to poor eyesight, the inability to see over the steering wheel or simply their IQ level.

More and more people are becoming allergic to going round mini-roundabouts.

If there is no traffic about then fine, do whatever you want.

Go crazy.

Stop on top of it.

Break out the deck-chairs and have a picnic.

Recite Shakespeare whilst standing on your head.


But what to do when there is traffic?

Why don’t you just go the wrong way around it, nearly crash into me and then have all three front passengers make obscene gestures for good measure.

Yup, white van man and his minions.

And just in case you wondered what the rules were:

Highway Code: Roundabouts (184-190)

Rule: 188
“Mini-roundabouts. Approach these in the same way as normal roundabouts. All vehicles MUST pass round the central markings except large vehicles which are physically incapable of doing so. Remember, there is less space to manoeuvre and less time to signal. Avoid making U-turns at mini-roundabouts. Beware of others doing this.”

So there you go.

They are there to do a job.

If you don’t let them perform this function, they will cry.

And will haunt your dreams.
