  1. It should be called The Nuclear Arms. I always said that nuclear arms could cause significant improvements to Parson Cross.
  2. What about the road markings 20 yards in front of the collision then that confirm the white car remained in it's lane. Are they irrespective too?
  3. When two parties are telling two different insurance companies that they both manoeuvred correctly I can't see how footage of the incident wouldn't be useful. A dashcam in either car in the OP incident would certainly have informed their insurance company whether they followed the road markings correctly or not.
  4. Yes, I see that lane 1 splits into three. These three lanes take you in the direction of the M1. But the issue with this approach is lane 2 markings. Lane 2, also labelled M1 on approach, takes you on to the roundabout. You cannot go towards the M1 from Lane 2 without changing lanes - despite it being marked M1 on approach. This is a different approach to the one shown in the google street view.
  5. I think Warpig is pointing out that the centre lane on approach is marked M1, but that lane guides you onto the A61S and away from the M1 when you actually enter the roundabout. If you needed the M1 and took the centre lane approach you would need to change lanes into the path of traffic that took the left hand lane approach and slow down to do so, impeding the flow of traffic behind that wants the A61S exit.
  6. Would you believe it? Another roundabout where arrows point straight on in the left lane but the white lines make you go left. Surely not two painting errors within a quarter of a mile of each other? https://goo.gl/maps/eN7bQFNY7sx Oh my giddy aunt. Same roundabout different approach. This roundabout should be a deathtrap. https://goo.gl/maps/Qty6JATUeFD2 Or maybe you can cross white lines if instructed to do so on the approach. Just a thought.
  7. I've just accepted that I'm right, that there's no cure for stupid, some people aren't for turning regardless of the evidence laid before them and I've moved on. I've also decided to get a dash cam - i think this thread proves their worth.
  8. Google street view shows a foreign wagon taking the same approach in the middle lane and managing to do so correctly. I think it's safe to assume that the driver isn't from around here and that English probably isn't his/her native language and that they were going the wrong way around a roundabout compared with their native Europe. The signage is sufficient enough to cover this, which makes me wonder how some people can't see that the driver of the black vehicle got it wrong.
  9. Great image. Now go 50 yards further down the road and review the marking on the lanes. https://goo.gl/maps/xyfq3tokQbB2 The last image in the sequence that you have coloured red simply shows the traffic from Shepcote Lane and beyond that they can access the viaduct from both left and centre lanes. The markings do not apply to traffic from Sheffield Road, as confirmed by the markings on entry and confirmed by the markings under the viaduct and confirmed by the member that posted videos of them correctly traversing the roundabout in both lanes.
  10. The road markings are clearer. There's only one vehicle that didn't follow them - the black one. There's been as much posted as is possible to show that you are incorrect. Videos, images, road markings and their locations, logic etc. A ton of metal can do a lot of damage in the wrong hands - I pray the people who still maintain that the black car acted appropriately are doing so through bravado and fear of appearing weak by changing their opinions on a public forum.
  11. I'd prefer to call it 25 pages of education. I'd rather people learn how to use the roundabout and the road markings than cause accidents.
  12. What's the chances of all the following being true? The lorry did it wrong. The council wasted paint and wrote Rotherham under the viaduct even though you can't possibly get to it from the approach marked Rotherham. The traffic in the videos posted all gets it wrong by going straight on in the left lane. I got it wrong when I went on the same approach yesterday and although I turned down the viaduct I appeared to have the option to go straight on. The white car followed the markings and got it wrong. Or could it be you not understanding the markings and how to apply them all while waving driving qualifications around to convince people of your incorrect argument and incorrectly applying rule 131 of the highway code? I know which side of the fence I'm on.
  13. If you are so insistent that cars cannot cross the white lines than all lanes point to M1N. Exhibit A. https://goo.gl/maps/scW1tjMSh712 Note the road markings. Lane 1: M1N/Rotherham Lane 2: Bawtry/M1S Lane 3: M1S Also pay attention to the lorry which is going to traverse the roundabout correctly in the middle lane. Exhibit B https://goo.gl/maps/GypBve7iNTr Note the road markings Lane 1: Rotherham (M1 has now gone because we passed that exit as we are entitled to do - the approach arrows told us so and the lane markings still back that up.) Lane 2: Bawtry/M1S (Lorry is still in this lane as the black car should have been) Lane 3 : M1S Exhibit C https://goo.gl/maps/mG4veZgXV8x Lorry correctly remaining in Lane for M1S/Bawtry and not at all changed lanes, thereby traversing the roundabout correctly and not getting in the way of traffic for Rotherham. Unlike the black car.
  14. The most convincing argument is that the black car starts in the lane for Bawtry/M1S and finishes in the lane for M1N/Rotherham. If you could explain how it managed this without changing lanes I will invite you to explain the following;. The white car starts in the lane for M1N/Rotherham and finishes in M1N/Rotherham all the time while following the guidance given on the approach. Explain how it managed this by changing lanes. If you can suitably explain the two above statements I will concede you are correct - i won't be holding my breath.
  15. Just let me know when you intend to use the roundabout and I'll make sure I steer clear of it on that day. Seems driving certifications aren't worth the paper they're written on. You should should stop posting on this thread before you make yourself look dafter than you already have. The most convincing argument is that the black car starts in the lane for Bawtry/M1S and finishes in the lane for M1N/Rotherham.
