    In France it is worth remembering that the protocol for roundabouts is different.

    Unlike the UK it is normal practice with a two-lane roundabout to use the right-hand lane when taking, for example, the third exit. Make sure you're indicating left as you enter the roundabout so other drivers know what you plan ... And of course indicate right prior to the exit you're taking.
    yes they do seem to go all around the roundabout in the 'outside' lane, little point in having the inner lane on most of them (but I use it )

    Not using indicators is a lot more dangerous, especially on motorways, than those that don't use them realise. Sheer dangerous laziness. I'm sure it is the cause of many accidents, changing lane without indicating, however things won't change.
    I remember in the states they used the overhead warning matrices to give messages like 'USE TRAFFICATORS ITS THE LAW' pity we don't do the same.

    we have REALLY useful messages on the side of motorways these days like "My daddy works on the motorway please take your rubbish home cos he might get hurt"....... as if we haven't got enough signs to read as it is....

    i love the ROI because generally on smaller/A roads they tell you something on a sign... remind you once and then forget it..... here we ar bombarded with sometime 36 signs approaching a sharp bend in somerset.. ye we is all far too thick to be drivers... we need telling over and over and over
