    The Roundabout over the by-pass on the Calder Road is cracking me up just now.

    I don't think there's a worse one for people not knowing what lane to be in or cutting across lanes, usually in front of me.
    Lane discipline at junctions and roundabouts is generally appalling. It's not rocket science.

    You can't go wrong there, lanes are clearly marked and they even light up at night!

    I drive that way fairly regularly admittedly mostly later in the evening and I've never has an issue being cut up or anything. The roundabout at PC world though, don't get me started.

    Some people switch off any notion of lane discipline there. I use it several times a day

    and I marvel at the lack of accidents if you consider the number of cars that use it.

    I wonder what percentage of drivers don't have a license?

    That roundabout, and the one at Maybury, are nightmares.

    They were a load of mini roundabouts IIRC. Way before my time of driving though.

    I try and avoid it at peak times but even mid morning or mid afternoon it can be horrendous, folk just pull out willy nilly, its no wonder theres be loads of smashes there.

    Information signs on motorways that inform you about things like low tyre pressure using more fuel then you get to your junction and it's closed for roadworks. Maybe use the signs to inform about important stuff and put the stating the obvious crap on when all is clear and well ahead.

    Youíd think but you can. The old Craighall junctions the worst - going towards the A7 youíll have someone in the dalkeith lane chop over into your lane to contend with before watching your right hand side for incoming.

    All that assumes no one from the bypass has dismissed your queue and continued straight through the red light.

    Plenty signs but a hell of a lot of folk that canít read.

    easily into double figures for the number of times someone's cut into my lane on that roundabout and I've had to hammer on the brakes.

    The A7 does not run from Old Craighall? Perhaps I am wrong....

    No you come off the A6106 (I think) and choose to go in the lane to the A7.

    Maybe youíre one of the problem?

    The A6106 and A7 are both Sherriffhall no? Old Craighall is the A1 and B6415 to Monktonhall and Musselburgh.

    You're all the problem, lane cutter uppers, you don't know the lanes at this roundabout. Sit your tests again.

    Away from navigating roundabout and the roads that pass them......

    Roasters that park in disabled spaces with no reason to do so. Some dickhead (blue BMW M3 13 plate if you read this) decided to tailgate me all the way through the Jewel Asda car park today then park in the disabled space nearest the door despite their being a whole row of empty spaces literally 3 spaces further up. Jumps out and strolls into the store with the carpets under the arms swagger. So thanks to Mr Selfish an actual disabled person may have had to walk or navigate themselves further because he couldn't be bothered walking about 6 extra steps. I've seen people do it on a Saturday afternoon when there is only 1 disabled space remaining. I wonder if it crosses these peoples minds quite how a wheelchair user is meant to sort themsleves out without the extra space a disabled space affords.

    See also folk who park in the pick up and drop off area then disappear into the shop again leaving the potential that an elderly and/or infirm person may have to walk further to meet their taxi or lift.

    There really is no excuse for either action.

    I hate that and never park in the DSB spaces for convenience. There are some videos of people being pulled up for it by other members of the public but it usually results in a confrontation with abuse being hurled towards the person filming.

    People are just too lazy these days and wont walk the length of their noses.

    If I knew how to add a picture I would.

    The problem junction on sherrifhall is coming from the road where the cockatoo is/was going towards Bonnyrigg. It doesnít matter the name of each of the roads but thatís the junction and direction that folk canít understand.

    Last night coming south on the Quensferry Crossing, the speed limit is reduced to 40 and the overtaking lane is unavailable, at least 5 cars came tearing down that lane overtaking the cars in the right lane. It was closed for workers who were operating near the roadway. The drivers are selfish pricks.

    I saw on Facebook that the lane signs and overhead gantries were showing different lanes were closed/restricted. But aye it's these guys lives you're slowing down for. When I see a workie I sometimes give them a wee wave!

    When I was on the road it was very clear as the gantries weren't at all confusing, though I suppose once I'd passed them they could have changed.

    Taxis, especially hackney cabs who avidly stick to the speed limit, 20, 30 ,40mph etc when they have a fare in the back but when they're empty they fly about the place cutting up other motorists, pulling U turns or just suddenly stopping because theres been a sniff of a fare... effin joke man.

    It's great when you are the fare that the taxi is stopping for though
