Having given it a few months to grow on me, I have now determined that it is now considerably slower for me to turn than it used to be and that I very much dislike waiting when the old way of doing things made much more sense and allowed traffic to flow more smoothly. 

I know other countries use it, but other countries use imperial too and does this mean we should drop our forward thinking methods and go back to the dark ages just because everyone else does too ?

having grown up with the left turn first way I would disagree, but to be honest I turn left mostly from uncontrolled intersections.

The biggest thing I notice is that you are far less likely to get into an accident due to someone not indicating now than before.




I know a little more than nothing but not much...
