Give way on A27 and it'll be fine

I write in reply to Bob Luckhurst's letter "Why it's not OK for you to break the law on the A27" (Herald, March 12).

Rules 184 to 190 of the Highway Code look at roundabouts, and rule 186 specifically deals with positioning and signalling.

Please note that this rule takes the "should/should not" form, meaning that it is not law but is instead advisory.

Indeed, as most car drivers who use roundabouts these days do not bother to signal, they also fall foul of this particular rule.

So, no laws are being broken, and suggesting that lives are being put at risk by the practice of using both lanes onto the roundabout out of Grinstead Lane is just being over dramatic in the extreme.

Give way to traffic already on the roundabout and you'll be just fine.
