but the current system does help traffic flow, if you look at all those examples on the govt page, the person who will have to give way come 25th May will have to wait longer, the person who will now have right of way would not have a problem with traffic when turning, they dont need to wait a long time for a gap in the traffic. thats why the current system is good.
But nobody obeys the current rules, or at least vary rarely.
Here is the current rule, red car has right of way - who does that?
The problem with this one is that If I am in blue car, i Try follow this rule. I check to see if there is a stop/yield sign for the red car, if not he has right of way.
Why should I be checking if h has a stop/yield sign? I need to be concentrating on possibly looking for pedestrians or cyclists etc..
If I am in red car, I never expect to have right of way
I agree. Thought about writing something longer but too confusing.
Yes the red car has the right of way currently. Who does that? Well most people I would expect, as they are the road rules. In practice I have come across some people who don't know the road rules, but most seem to follow that rule.
i honestly thought the red card only had right of way if turning out of a ROAD (with no markings). it looks like its pulling out of a carpark here.
The biggest problem with the above example is most of the time the Red Car would be on a STOP or Give Way sign and have to give way to the blue car. The change to the rules means the Red card has to always give way to the Blue car.
