I don't want to poke my nose in but Will does have a point.. whenever i leave a roundabout I always check over my shoulder 'just in case' and i was taught to drive 22 yeas ago.

Won't let it die, eh? I would love to meet up with you Will and then i would explain to you alright.

You still don't grasp the point of the original thread or the content. You should give up. The message has been well received by many others.

Worth taking a look at [www.highwaycode.gov.uk] to refresh ones memory, remembering to adjust for driving on right hand side.

Actually - not wanting to cause another arguement......BUT...Badger the whole point is that Bill and Pam kindly pointed out that the spanish highway code is completly at odds with the right of way on roundabouts as taught by the UK Highway code - as Bill found out to his expense (tho we have found out if he wasn't looking yet!!)

Michelle - shall we say 10p per copy of your newsheet sold? Speak to my people at Coutts for my account details.........!!

My hand is up but, then again, it nearly always is as I do not drive a car anymore having lost my d.l. after a rather nasty accident at a roundabout . I now ride a camel which is certainly a lot healthier than smoking one. To get go the point though.......even camels have priority on a roundabout if they are in the right hand lane regardless which exit they intend to take. I learnt this the hard way ;-)

Folks,
Thanks very much for the warning you posted about the Lane Priorities at Lanzarote Roundabouts.
We also hired a car on our visit last week and stuck to your rule " staying in the right land"..... and it worked fine.
We would encourage anyone to rent a car and tour the island, theres so much more to see than the Tour Companies show to us tourists.
Enyoy and good luck.

Does anyone else find the idea of someone called Noel riding a camel in December a touch festive and rather amusing?

If you read this part of the original quote...
"apporached in the left hand lane (nearest the central reserve)"
I don't think you were near the pavement at all......
You were lucky you weren't tested for DD because you obviously didn't know
where you were at all!!
