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 Â 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!
