The changes to the road rules, which happen at 5am tomorrow morning, are worrying some people, but how hard can it be?
Jim Hopkins, with tongue in cheek says it could be tricky:
It’s going to be chaos. There’s no two ways about it. The very best place for any of us come 5am on Sunday will be between the sheets, not on the streets. Better bed than dead is the advice, unless, of course, we’re happy to let chaos reign and the scuppers run with gore.
Because that’s what will happen, sure as eggs. We’ll be like Lamborghinis to the slaughter out there; dithering, dallying and desperately trying to remember what we’re supposed to do and when we’re supposed to turn. . . .
But seriously, it isn’t that hard: give way to the right except when turning left; and give way when turning right unless you’re moving from a through road covers the main changes.
The effect of this is that left turning vehicles will no longer have to yield to those turning right and those turning right from the terminating leg of a T intersection will have to give way to anyone turning right form the through road.
