    Come on, you're going to have to narrow it down a bit more - that could be anyone :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Rule 185 First part,
    When reaching the roundabout you should give priority to traffic approaching from your right, unless directed otherwise by signs, road markings or traffic lights.

    The so called "Driver" of the said vehicle was going to fast coming up to the roundabout to stop, I was coming from the right and saw that he could not stop so had to change my speed and lane on the roundabout until I could pull in behind him to exit on the same road as him.

    Papa I know you will be very aware of the problem roundabout, its the Carnaby roundabout,
    The problem with it is if you are going straight over from the Haisthorpe end, its more a less a straight run so drivers dont slow down for it

    Reminds me of an incident last year.

    Approaching a roundabout in the MH I saw a 'hot hatch' approaching the roundabout at speed to my right.

    He was further from the roundabout but traveling too fast.

    I had a choice, brake heavily (in a 3500kg van) or keep going, thought 'sod it' and carried on -

    He had to brake, leaned on his horn, followed me to the next set of lights, got out of his car and gave me a mouthful of abuse..............quite right some will say

    He was annoyed that I hadn't 'given way' - never mind his reckless driving.................

    Did I feel bad?..........................sorry..............no

    You where both driving reckless, you for not being set up to stop and give way if you had too and him for practically the same thing.

    At the end of the day fellas we all have our moments,If any of you know St Nicholas roundabout in Thanet you will know that people often end up on top of it .Poor rabbits all have to dive for cover.Its normally newcomers that have sat at 70-100 mph for so long and all of a sudden need to slow down but leave it to late.Ive often overshot junctions im not familiar with, it happens.The driver of the motorhome , towing the boat , with the blue tarp :Wink::Rofl1: probably realised what he had done and went "OOPS" whilst his Mrs was screaming at him.

    Strengthens the case for having cameras such as Roadhawks installed.
