We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

Hey idiots, learn how to indicate at a roundabout.

8 Comments

How bloody hard is it to learn how to indicate around and through a roundabout people?!

I’ve had a enough of it and nearly blown a head gasket thinking about it.

Every morning dozens of gumbies fail to indicate properly at the four roundabouts I have to go through to get to the supermarket and pre-school.

Most idiots drivers have their right indicator on when they are driving straight through a roundabout, making me think they are going to proceed around it – BUT NO!!

They then drive straight through without turning on their left indicator to let me know they are exiting the roundabout.

 

Even my children now know how to indicate properly – we practice with matchbox cars.

 

IT DRIVES ME BATTY!!! The old joke ”did you win your licence in a cornflakes packet” doesn’t ever cover the stupidity I see every day.

These drivers obviously bribed or slept with their instructors to get a licence or they are missing a chromosome. Either that or they are inherently lazy f$%ers who don’t give a crap about other drivers.

Here’s the facts about roundabouts off the Department of Transport and Main Roads:

 

Turns that occur at roundabouts can be described by imagining the roundabout to be a clock face.

 

Any turn that exits the roundabout before 12 o’clock can be considered a left turn. Any turn that exits after 12 o’clock can be considered a right turn.

 

For those people who can’t read or understand simple instructions – here’s a visual.

DO NOT INDICATE RIGHT AT A ROUNDABOUT IF YOU’RE GOING STRAIGHT THRU!!!!

Learn it and use it people and please share with every other Queenslander because I’ll soon have to start taking matter into my own hands.

And in the words of Dr David Banna (aka the Incredible Hunk)  ”You won’t like me when I’m angry”.

That is all.

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. I don’t indicate if going straight thru but have been told by numerous people the rule has changed…good thing I don’t listen to them.

  2. I’ve heard the same as Lydia. Honestly I have no idea if it’s true or not! I just tried to look it up, but the PDF on the RTA website won’t load for me!

    Roundabouts give me a little road rage too *nods*

    MC x

  3. I totally feel your pain!!!!! I was driving as a passenger with a friend and as we approached the roundabout she turned her indicator on to signal right, which was correct because we were going right, and then she laughed at herself and made a comment like ‘oh don’t know why I put that on’ and turned it off which confused me….then we entered the roundabout and then she turned it on again…. I still to this day have no idea why she turned it off in the first place, like she thinks you don’t actually indicate until you are on the roundabout……. I often wish Kellogs would stop handed out licences!!

  4. Dude I think your blog ate my comment..nom nom nom comments.

  5. You are so right, Em. There are FAR too many gumbies on the road, and they piss me off too! x

  6. Man, I hate the whole wrong indicating through roundabouts thing as well. So excruciatingly painful – thanks for the visual!

  7. Hi Em, not sure if my comment got through or not but I also hate it when people can’t merge when entering the freeway…hope you enjoy your week.

  8. I think there needs to be a special roundabout test when you go for your drivers licence. I feel your pain!
