Oh dear! Look out! It's coming to get you ...

"Cyclists in London will be able to legally run red traffic lights if plans by Boris Johnson, the capital's mayor and a keen cyclist, get the go-ahead from the government.

Johnson has written to the Department for Transport (DfT) to moot a pilot scheme that would allow cyclists to turn left at traffic lights, even if they are on red, as long as they give way to pedestrians. Currently, cyclists can be handed an on-the-spot fine of 30 for running lights.

If the pilot proves a success, the law could be changed nationally. Similar practices are standard in other countries: in Germany, where traffic travels on the right, right turns on red are permitted for all vehicles when a specific sign is present."

At least it's not straight across or turning right.

Safety first Betsy, rather go through a red light than wait for a bullet through the windscreen

Seven in the morning, a hard pavement shoulder on my left hand side, thirty to forty cars on my right travelling against my direction, my car the only one in my lane tavelling in my direction.
At the end of the line of cars a Mercedes 350 pulls out and charges down towards me obviously in the wrong lane traveling in the wrong direction, expecting him to force his way in as is the usual here I carry on only to realise he is not forcing his way in and is not going to stop.
When a collision is all that can happen I stand on my brakes and pull the wheel to the left, he manages to squeeze in between me and the car next to me, stops and tells me I am F%^&4N stupid as well as a few other choice descriptions before driving away.

Joburg's an interesting place to drive.

Dave , your story reminds me of the time I went
on my test for my driving licence , years ago .
I was going through an intersection when a halfwit
of a driver, in his Station wagon with three youngsters
in that car . decided to make a left turn The light's where green and I am moving forward , so to try and prevent an accident I swerved
to my right ,
he got through and I carried on to the licence bureau , needless to say I did not get my licence , because when I swerved it could have been
the cause of another accident by my passing across the inside lane at that intersection . So I learned a lesson that day , Never swerve to avoid an
an accident , no matter the consequences .
I made an appointment for the next afternoon and got my licence .
Also In my years of driving since then , I have never been involved
in an auto accident , although I once had an accident in the driveway
with our garbage bin , entirely my husbands' fault at that time ,
he had not removed that bin . laugh.gif
