Aldi meat aisle horrors.

This prodigal return reminds me of when they introduced Scrappy Doo. All the charm and originality of the earlier series fcuked out the window for the sake of a few cheap laughs aimed at the lowest common denominator

Who is at fault here?

Maybe I should be saying direction of travel instead of lane if people can't get this, but you do everything for a change of direction of travel as you do for a change of lane so I don't see why it's that difficult to grasp

Who is at fault here?

Leaving one road and commencing on another is a change of lane. Crossing the direction oncoming traffic travels from when turning right at a T-junction is a change of two lanes, whether there are road markings or not. Going straight ahead at a crossroads of single lane roads is still a change of thr

A roundabout is a junction you have to enter and exit no matter what direction of travel you are taking. Take a crossroad junction for example; if you are turning left you change lane once, right you change lane twice, straight ahead you change lane three times. A roundabout is device to improve t

You have to enter (change lane) and exit (change lane) every single one of them

It's impossible to use a roundabout without changing lanes at least twice. Blue car in this example is changing lane four times. The red car isn't where it is because it changed lane, it's where it is because it didn't change lane where it was expected to. i.e exiting the roundabout

No one is saying they are in the wrong. Put it another way; There's a car barreling on the wrong side of the road towards you. Do you carry on regardless as you are in the 'right' or do you take evasive action?

You don't expect, you don't presume, you don't assume. You can only control the vehicle that you are driving. You do that do the best of your ability and you stay alert to the possibility of others not doing the same

It's right there in your reply, you think the blue car was right to leave its lane and hit the red car because it was following the proper procedures on the roundabout

One word in your reply says it all. Presume nothing

Who is at fault here?

Of course it wouldn't be needed if the red car was in the correct lane. But the red car is where it is, and as for following traffic, do you not think they will have to perform any sudden changes in direction or momentum when traffic in front of them collide? The vast amount of road users not expe
