I think roundabouts are just there to put a stupid memorial at an intersection. It's not hard to navigate through, here. My dad almost T-boned a Range Rover once cause the idiot lady was pulling out of a gas station and didn't look out direction. We had to swerve and almost went off the road.
They're a pretty simple concept if you have half a brain. The problem is most people don't so every roundabout you enter you have to dodge people who give no warning before flying across lanes, people that don't yield while entering the roundabout, etc. You know, about 90% of the other vehicles in the thing.
You are telling the truth
Even if they use the signal, they dont look to see if its clear to change lanes. They just signal n go
Even worse when they go and then signal when they're halfway in the other lane already. Kinda defeats the purpose.
Some bitch ass woman driving a Mazda 6 was talking on the phone,we both stopped in an intersection for a left turn to a highway. There are two lanes intended for the 'left turners',I was in the leftmost lane,she was to my right and we were the first in line...when the stoplight had told us its good to go,we started moving and all of a sudden the stupid cow cuts me off with such a sharp turn into my lane which almost,but almost got us into a goddamned collision,luckily I had responded very quickly so it didn't happen. Afterwards,once I got to drive beside her,I honked so many times,waiting for her to look and flip my finger at her once she does,but she didn't even pay any attention,she was still "busy" talking on that f*cking phone,bringing this up made me a little angry..
Nobody seems to be able to stay in their lane on double turning lanes as it is let alone with a phone to their ear and completely zoned out to the world around them. Only time I was nearly in an accident due to the other person using their phone(that I know of at least) was when I went through and intersection on a 2 lane divided road with a sidewalk-like median in the middle. I had the green light so I went and was pretty much across the intersection when I look right to see this dumb bitch looking down at her cell phone texting about to sideswipe me. She was turning right(obviously) from my right(it's legal to turn right on a red here as long as it's clear). She was too busy looking at her damn phone that my guess is she hadn't even looked before deciding to go,if she had she definitely would've saw the damn pickup truck right there(me). By the time I even noticed her about to hit me I didn't have much time to slow down or speed up to make way for the dumb broad, so I did the only thing I could do to avoid a collision, I drove up onto the median to my left with my all but my passenger tires on top of it(it wasn't quite wide enough for the whole truck to go up on it) and layed on my horn(this is why I drive a truck, if I was in a car I wouldn't have had any options besides lay on the horn and hope she didn't hit me). After she was completely in the lane and inches away from the side of my truck she FINALLY looked up from her phone and noticed me there, after which she proceeded to flim ME off and speed away. She pissed me off so much I actually sped up to run her off the road(only one of 2 times I've ever road raged) but, fortunately my passenger calmed me down before I caught up to her.
I also have another story about my other road rage which, I'll admit, was completely me in the wrong. It only happened because 1) it was about 1am arriving back in Edmonton after staying in Calgary for a while so I(and everyone else in the truck) was tired and just wanted to get home and 2) Because we had almost been in 2 accidents in the past 10 minutes do to idiots running red lights. Neither of those are any excuse for my dickery but I want you to know why I did it. Anyway, my GPS had said we needed a left turn just ahead. So we get to this turn and are in the turning lane(It was really similar to the turning lane the texting bitch had with the triangular divider) and the GPS decides to basically tell me "nope, this is the wrong turn, screw you" and that the actual turn is ahead farther. Being pretty mad about the incidents before this and knowing that this turn I was taking now takes a long time to get turned around and back on track from(I had made the mistake of going that way in the past) I decided "f*ck it!" took a quick glance over my shoulder to see if there was any cars immediately to my right in the straight through lane. There was one car pretty close but I once again decided "f*ck it!" and that I had enough time, so I gunned it over the divider, literally got all four wheels off the ground and landed in the straight through lane cutting this car off in the process. At this point I was done giving any sh*ts about anything so I just kept accelerating til I was at about 80kmh(it was a 50 zone if I remember correctly. The car I cut off layed on his horn which(and I sh*t you not about this next part) apparently attracted the attention of a group of about 6 Mexicans(nothing against Mexicans, that's just the best way I can describe them) on the sidewalk outside of a bar just up the road(obviously drunk). They collectively dissaproved of what went down and decided they were gonna do something about it, so as I drove by them at 80 they(once again, I sh*t you not) all reached out and tried to punch my truck(or maybe grab onto it?). After seeing them do that it immediately changed both mine and my friend's moods and we laughed about it for the rest of the trip. Also, once our moods had changed it actually sunk in that I had pulled an extremely reckless and dangerous stunt that could've been straight out of Dukes of Hazard and the only person who cared during the incident was the person in the car XD
And I appologize for the long post.
