Right Hand Turn Rule

Even though personally I fnd the right hand turn rule easy to use, I tend to support the AA’s call for it to be changed so that like in almost all other countries, traffic turning on the kerb can do so with right of way.

It would be a hassle during the transition period, but I do see all too often near misses as cars turn across a road as a left turning vehicle is giving way, and then the car behind which isn’t turning almost bowls them.

The rationale behind the rule I guess is to make it easier for cars turning across the traffic, to net get stuck for ages.

If this change is supported, I would hope they also look at allowing left turning drivers to do so on a red light, so long as it is safe.
