Cars A and B are both heading for Exit C.

Which land should each car be in before exiting the roundabout?

It's a long time since I passed my test, but can they not just stay in the lanes they're in?

Both lanes would take them off for Exit C would it not?

quite prepared to be told IABU

what houseofgold says

I hate roundabouts. what's wrong with traffic lights and proper lanes?

Both lanes.

DuggeeHugs Fri 26-May-17 12:47:18

Look like they're fine as they are - just need to continue in lane

NannyR Fri 26-May-17 12:47:29

They are both in the correct lane, aren't they?

Looks to me like Car A is in the lane for Exit B and should be in one of the inner 2 to go to Exit C

Gowgirl Fri 26-May-17 12:48:27

Car b should try to move left but can exit in their current lane, car a is fine, lovley diagram!

Both lanes, they would just needs to stay in thier respective lanes when they exit the roundabout.

HouseOfGoldandBones Fri 26-May-17 12:48:58

What were your thoughts @Nerves2017 ?

MaxPepsi Fri 26-May-17 12:49:35

The lanes they are in are both fine.
B stays in the lane it's already in and A moves across to the right so they are next to each other.
Unless b immediately wanted to turn left coming off the roundabout then they should be in a different lane so as not to cut up anyone on the inside of them.

RufusTheRenegadeReindeer Fri 26-May-17 12:49:59

I think they are in the right lanes

Did the other car prefer your lane more?

QueenMortificado Fri 26-May-17 12:50:16

Is car A in the lane where car A is written or the pink blob? If the pink blob then continue in their lane

RoganJosh Fri 26-May-17 12:51:28

I think they're fine as they are.

Did car B move into car A's lane?

honeysucklejasmine Fri 26-May-17 12:53:05

If the cars are the colour coded squares then they should both just continue in lane. No issue.

LIZS Fri 26-May-17 12:53:36

Assumng it is a dual carriageway at exit c both lanes can filter in.

Nerves2017 Fri 26-May-17 12:59:37

Car B was me earlier, I continued in my lane, following it around and Car A was drifting into my lane rather than following his around.

No indication, he wasn't trying to cut in, he believed that I was in the wrong lane and had drifted into the wrong lane?!?

I received a lot of abuse, he got it back. Told him to look at the road markings and all the other cars doing the same as me! Why can't people drive?

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Fri 26-May-17 12:59:42

from that diagram i'd say both cars are fine to go off at ExitC, sticking to their lanes ...it's two lanes to two lanes.

Nerves2017 Fri 26-May-17 13:01:24

Just to add the road markings on the diagram are actually on the road itself!

Car A is in the wrong lane. Happens to the best of us, but when it does you change lanes if and when it's safe, and aren't a dick about it.

HectorHedgehog Fri 26-May-17 13:10:51

I agree with LIZS

TheTurnOfTheScrew Fri 26-May-17 13:11:29

yup, both follow their own lanes

Although if you regularly encounter people messing it up it's worth hanging back and being extra vigilant - the route back to the motorway from the Trafford Centre is always full of interesting interpretations of lane markings, so I'm extra careful.

They're in the correct lanes and should just continue as they are.
