Motorists are getting themselves in a spin over how to handle the roundabouts on Carlisle’s new western 'bypass', it has emerged.
Have your say
Well done ladies, superb article and video. I have driven the new bypass route several times now and use the 12 o'clock rule as taught by my driving instructor some years ago. Its simple and easy to remember but unfortunately a lot of drivers dont seem to have a clue it would be a shame for such a fantastic local improvement to be marred by accidents caused by peoples ignorance. I hope your campaign gets the message across! Good Luck!
I always thought you learned how to use a roundabout when you learned to drive or do instructors and testers not bother now.
I'm glad this has been highlighted as it won't be long before there is an accident. I know we don't have many roundabouts in Carlisle, but surely common sense would tell you, you don't always go around a roundabout in the left hand lane!!
