Personally speaking i think the direction arrows (Lanes at Intersections) have become irrelevant and should actually be allowed to fade into obscurity. Seeing as only the law abiding roadusers still obey them. As we are in the minority it should be allowed to lapse - one cannot allow the minority law abiding motorist to cause such disruption for the majority non-law abiding motorist. Reason behind this - it seems as if everybody is just flatly ignoring the directional arrows and are carrying on straight or turning when-ever, where-ever it suits them, and it is getting worse by the day. Thought i should share this gem of wisdom with the club. Regards en safe driving. LeRoy Crying or Very sad

Unfortunately I think that ALL rules of the road are non existent at this stage, Amber robots used to mean “Slow down it is going to change to red” Now it means “put your foot down and see if you can get through before it changes to red !!” Evil or Very Mad

And to think, my mom got a fine, a couple of years ago, for going straight in a turn-only lane.
Obviously nobody cares about the rules of the road any more.
This is very sad. Sad Sad

It's too much work to fine people for moving violations.

Much easier to sit next a laser gun and catch the real road vandals speeding on the highways.

After all this is what causes all road deaths - not illegal u-turns, changing lanes without indicating, skipping red traffic lights etc... Evil or Very Mad

The bribes on country roads are better too and less chance of getting caught!

Moving violations are just too much trouble to get out of my comfy chair and actually do whta I am being paid to do!

How can you expect them to do what they are being paid for - to much. I mean after-all they are there are they not - and that is already more than can be expected - one must be realistic. LeRoy

Catching people who do not obey the rules is a very time-consuming job you know. I mean, all they need to do is set up a few speed traps at the bottom of a steep hill and they are sure to make more money than catching people not obeying the rules of the road. Everybody has to be more productive, you know? scratch

What do you mean not obeying the rules is dangerous? We ARE catching the people who drive too fast - hellooo.... rabbit
