That entire area is a joke at the moment. They have recently changed the layout of the roundabout slightly and that alone is enough to confuse you a little when using it for the first time.

If that roundabout layout is going to be permanent it's shit... There was nothing wrong with the old layout. It'll end up like the one where the A41 meets M53 at Eastham with lights and people not sure which lane they should be in...

Hope nonone was hurt

How on earth does that happen?

Mind boggles.

Having said that, I had someone in the tunnel today with a clear stretch in front of her, indicate and swerve over in front of me into gap I'd left. We weren't even half way through the tunnel!

Drivers coming from the roundabout past B&Q don't look ahead and pull into the outside lane letting the drivers pull out from the retail park. It does get frustrating sat there so maybe someone gave up waiting and pulled on out

Love the German way of doing it - "There is no such thing as an accident, someone is always to blame." They then set about sorting out who it was and do them.

Bandy, I believe that's why an RTA became an RTC?

It was a Legal case where the guy got off with the conviction because his Legal team argued the point that an accident implies that there is nobody to blame, ergo his client was not guilty. I wish I could remember the name of it. I'll keep looking and post it when I find it (not that anyone's interested in Case Law but it will really piss me off if I don't find it).

Some Forces call them RTI's too or Road Traffic Incidents. I still think of them as TA's (traffic accidents) as that's what they were when I started nursing. (Yes I really am that old).

I feel for them all - I was in one last week and it's not pleasant at all frown


Sometimes Police Officers give more than just speeding tickets!

No wonder they say "the Law is an ass"..!!! Did the person get off, then?
