    how would you do this...?



    Im taking this island daily at the min on my way back from work and nearly every day im road-raging at the 2nd point of the island as people dont know which lane to take and im just wondering :-

    How would you actually take this island on approach? Which lane would you start in...? which lane would u hop into at the 2nd point? and which lane would that leave u in at point 3??


    Cheers

    id go either outside middle outside or middle inside inside

    know wht you mean there is a island in telford that is marked a442 all the way aroudn so you jsut followthe writing which even without it it makes sense but idiots still seams to go in the wrong land and try to force there way back into the middle lane

    In the perfect world, as Ffoeg has said,

    However in reality half the people in the left hand lane at point 1 will have failed to read the road so will attempt to go straight over thus cutting up all those in lane 2 as they attempt to move into lane 1 at point 2

    So I would sit in lane three, at point 1, attempt to move to the middle lane at point 2, if its is clear then do so and exit to the outside lane at point 3.
    If there are cars in fighting for position in lanes 1 and 2 as the lane 1 driver can't read the road, then I would hang out in lane 3 at point 2 and then put all 300 horse to work and exit in the outside lane at point 3, by which time I will be far enough in front of the lane 2 driver as to not cut them up
