Joining lanes

posted in: Uncategorised | 0

Every so often I come across someone who is stopped at the beginning of a joining lane. There are a couple near me and it always alarms/surprises me that someone would stop in the road for no apparent reason at all.


What I presume they are trying to do is to get into to the far lane in order to turn further down the road and are a waiting for a gap in the traffic. Shouldn’t they actually be continuing along the joining lane “indicating” while speeding up the the speed of the traffic  and then pulling over to the far lane.


This I think would be far safer then actually stopping and hen darting across three or two lanes at a slow speed!
