    They tried to bury us, they didn't realise we were seeds.

    Did he think the guy following was incapable of keeping track of him?
    It was a girl and she was directly behind me so hardly losing him, I must have split them up when I entered the roundabout. Surely just pull in if you think someone following has fallen behind?

    You would think that would be easier or just put the destination into her sat nav or phone but if she was as thick as him they'd be better getting a taxi

    Just to further the car sharing thing. The original guidance we had from work (NHS) was that we could car share where possible, that was over a month ago though.

    There is no requirement to indicate when moving back into your own lane after overtaking.
    Maybe not, but pulling in a few metres after passing me and making me brake is not decent driving.

    When you are approaching a side road and a car zooms up to the give way line with the driver looking away from you, then brakes really hard when they finally look towards you and glares at you because theyíve had to slow down or stop.

    Is it just me or are most drivers totally ignoring zebra crossings since lockdown?

    I live just off McDonald Road so I cross the zebra crossing just at the Co-op most days. It seems to be the exception that cars stop these days. One even peeped me mid cross today.

    People undertaking.

    I was driving through Corstorphine on Tuesday, just before 8 - so the bus lanes were on. As a result I was in the outside lane doing 20 miles an hour.

    As we moved into the 30 mph area, I started speeding up, and a van and a car went into the bus lane and went past me.

    Of course the traffic lights not too far ahead went red and I caught them up quite quickly. But I just didn't understand it,

    Out cycling yesterday and there seemed to be an unusually high number of drivers beeping at each other. I wonder if some have got so used to having the roads to themselves recently that they are now extra impatient.

    I agree with this. I think it's a problem anyway, but when it's done without indication it makes it a lot more dangerous.

    I drove from Edinburgh to Grangemouth yesterday and the roads seemed a lot busier than they have been. Some of the driving was ridiculous. I keep meaning to get a dashcam and yesterday made that more urgent in my mind.

    At the bottom of Clermiston Road on the corner near specialised signs there are a set of traffic lights, when the green arrow light appears but the top red light is still there it means you can go straight ahead but not turn left as the pedestrians have a green man and right to cross clermiston road. People beep their horn when you
    donít go and turn left as people go ahead on the green light, can they not understand traffic lights!

    Aye. And I see that not many have improved their driving over the past 10 weeks. After a nice, calm period on the roads it was more back to normal. A few instances of road rage, speeding everywhere, not letting cars merge, others ignoring roadworks merging and tanking up the lane they can see is closed ahead, speeding past cyclists, undertaking.

    Ah well. It was good whilst it lasted.

    Absolutely not an excuse, but that pedestrian light phase is relatively new. Many drivers are on automatic pilot half the time, they don't really pay attention to the sequencing but see green and want to go!
