What would you do with people who display both L and N plates?

I'm not sure if it's a law or a guideline.
If the driver in the left lane is going to 3 o’clock and the driver in the right lane is going straight ahead you’d be going across them.

I sure don't FEEL entitled while I struggle to to get aforementioned cages up onto the curb past parked cars or strip them down and carry tons of product into a shop one at a time while being looked at and spoken to like a mere nuisance.

On that note 6 points for abandoning a vehicle in a loading bay when you're clearly not loading.

The left lane of a Spanish roundabout is for:

You can't exit from the left lane of a Spanish roundabout at the third exit... even if the exit road has two lanes. They consider that as 'cutting up'.

The official preference is to drive all around the roundabout in the right lane.

o Performing a full 360 degree turn of the roundabout. Going back where you came from. Once again, you need to filter back into the right lane between the third and fourth exits.
And exactly same rules (just change the times to reflect we are goofing) are valid in Ireland. The RSA guidance has NO underlying laws, except for "we think it would be best".

if youre at 6 o clock, then any driver coming from your right going to either your 12 o clock or 3 o clock.... should already be in the right lane.....

Driving at a crawling 20km/hr on rural roads and on the complete opposite side of the road going around blind corners but thinking you're safe because you are going so slow... immediate ban and resit of the test.

Endangering vulnerable road users... 5 points.

Bandon Road Roundabout can take a lot of points, for poor road markings at the very least.

Driving with fog lights on, when there’s no fog.

No points, but drivers should be made to spray ‘I am a tool’ in foot high letters down each side of their car.
