I think 3 seconds is a rule of thumb, not a road rule. However, I believe it would take about 3 seconds, at the least, from the time the vehicle stops until it begins to move on if the driver had a proper look in both directions (not counting if they need to creep forward to improve their line of sight, which I have to do before leaving my street).

It's situational. If it's one of those roads that you actually need to physically turn your head both sides to look, yeah 3 seconds even if it's quiet. But some roads you can easily scan both sides like a few metres before stopping, therefore requiring less stationary time.

More driving discussion! Do you trust other drivers' indicators when entering a round-a-bout? I certainly don't! So many times there are people that decide to change their mind the last second and then you're screwed:/

I think you also fail, or get points deducted, if you don't turn your head around to look behind you when reversing.

Oh, and when there are two lanes and you sit in the left hand lane waiting, and the guy in the right hand lane stops riiiiight in your field of vision of the roundabout.

Some people indicate to enter the roundabout which doesn't make sense. I have a feeling people may have been taught this in the early days of roundabouts, but having someone indicate left and then going straight through has caused near misses in the past. I try not to trust the indicators, but when it's a really busy roundabout and there aren't many openings, it feels like you have to take a punt.

I think they can take that as not properly checking if it's safe to enter the road, rather than a time condition.

What about pedestrians? What about cars that might be travelling on the wrong side of the road? Cars that might be speeding and reduce your chance of entering safely? I don't think you can determine whether it's safe to proceed based on these and other factors in less than a second, especially since the reason that a stop sign is there is because visibility is poor.

On roundabouts, they're terrible. I've been hit twice on my motorcycle entering or on a roundabout because people don't look. When I was on the roundabout, I did a good enough job of avoiding the person entering almost t-boning me that might front wheel was only lightly tapped; no damage, and I wasn't knocked over. When I was entering, I was waiting for the roundabout to clear before entering, I got cleaned up from behind, sent into the roundabout on my side. That last one could've happened anywhere as clearly they weren't even watching in front of them.

That last accident could be caused by pre-scanning the intersection before arriving in it, so be careful Deek. It's great to be aware of what may be entering towards your part of the road, but have a thorough look after you stop, not before.

You do have to indicate when entering a roundabout, but only if you are turning right or left. The 'indicate when exiting a roundabout, unless it is impractical to do so' confuses a lot of people, because they're stupid. My brother is an example, he understood the rule perfectly. but he'd go out of his way to indicate when exiting a roundabout, creating much difficulty for himself to keep the car under control to do so. He had a lot of work to do to fully grasp the 'unless it is impractical to do so' part. I won't get in the car with him, not because he's unsafe, but because he's so terrible he makes it unsafe.

I don't indicate on exit on my motorcycle because it's impractical all the time.

Yeah, basically you indicate the direction you're going to exit. I'm talking about people who indicate left to enter the roundabout regardless of which direction they're planning on heading in. Those people do exist and years and years ago I heard it as a rule, although I'm not sure if it was ever officially one.

The thing is if you toot or yell at many of these people, they will give you the finger. Ironically, giving you the finger requires far more effort than indicating in the first place.

Oh yeah, I know what you meant. I hate it too, because I see it all the time and different moronic interpretations of it. It is a rule, but an optional one. It has fucked up roundabouts so royally that they should remove it entirely.

Yeah I've heard that from a mate only a few years ago. I told him it was stupid and I still don't do it. It just ads unnecessary confusion.
Indicating off I've started to do lately. Mainly because because of people who don't indicate at all, I feel like adding that bit of extra notice to other drivers can't hurt.

UK Voice fails in ratings

"The Voice’s audience on Saturday was down a MILLION on the previous week, leaving Simon Cowell’s BGT nearly two million ahead."

"An insider said: “The Voice originally sold itself as being the ‘nice’ talent show and viewers loved that when it was coupled with the drama of the spinning chairs during the blind auditions. But once the show moved into its live stage, a lot of viewers have tired of it and criticised the coaches for being too nice to singers who just aren’t that great."

Sound familiar?

Be careful Channel Nine.

The optional rule is 'on exit' not 'on entry'. I indicate on exit sometimes, but not very often. Only when I think it might be useful.

I wish more people rode motorcycles, I think the road would be a much safer place to be. Ride a motorcycle for any length of time and you quickly realise how life-threatening many of the actions taken by motorists (often referred to as 'cagers' in the motorcyclist community) really are.

People on our roads are oblivious, selfish, or uncaring cunts. I'll frequently see people make a mistake on the road, like being in the wrong lane, and then inconvenience or endanger other drivers whilst correcting this mistake. If they could just communicate with other drivers on the road, it'd be a much nicer place to be.

If I make a mistake, I'll wear it and correct it later in the safest way (on a motorcycle if I don't, I'll probably end up dead). Once recently, I was stuck in a lane that wasn't getting an arrow to turn, something was wrong with the timing. I asked the driver next to me if I could go in front of them so I could get out, they said that I could. It won't be often that they'll say no.

Yes, that's right, I'm not saying otherwise.

This optional rule is misinterpreted so often and in spectacularly dangerous ways if other people aren't on their toes, that it should be removed. It's not written ambiguously, but people are clearly not understanding it. The worst part is that these people are then able to pass on their incorrect usage of it to someone else when teaching them how to drive.

Pretty sure that in the past (or maybe still?) you are/were supposed to indicate left whenever you exit the roundabout. Maybe it is (was?) a UK rule and carried over from there. Most roundabouts in Australia only have 3-4 exits, so it doesn't make much sense on those, but on big ones with like 8 exits it may be more suited.

It is, but the exact wording (in NSW) is "If practicable, a driver driving in a roundabout must give a left change of direction signal when leaving the roundabout." In other words, if it doesn't make sense, you don't have to do it. It often doesn't make sense.

It's only really useful on massive roundabouts.

As we don't have many with a large number of exits, I'll only make use of it when the roundabout is quite large, like the ones so big that you can't see your exit when you get on it. I can see it's purpose then, but it's something that'd make sense to do even if the rule wasn't in the book and/or optional. Get on large roundabout, turn off indicator if it was on for a good reason (often pointless on such a large roundabout), approach exit, indicate so others know you're turning off.

Pretty simple, and rarely useful.

You can take that a step further. I was taught the same, but part of motorcycle training is scanning. You're constantly moving your eyes from left to right, checking mirrors and blind spots, looking for hazards and obstacles, noting vehicle positions around you and changes to that, which makes long trips rather fatiguing.

Since you're constantly observing your surroundings, watching driver behaviour inside their vehicle, looking at their wheels for movement and direction, you can see emerging patterns and start to predict what people are going to do. It can be like "this person is going to dangerously pull out in front of me in 3... 2... and there we go, lucky I was expecting that and slowed down and have primed my brakes". It keeps you on your toes, prepared for what may happen and you always have an escape route in mind and planned for.

I'm always sceptical and never go in if there is a car anywhere near to the right of me even if they are indicating to turn off. Would have probably been hit on my motorcycle if I trusted them.

Very true.

I find myself having to ride as if no one else on the road can see me and be overly cautious, because a lot of the time they don't, and if you're not prepared you are screwed.

Not too long ago I was riding along a street and a car was stopped ahead to the left at a T-intersection indicating to turn right. I slowed down a bit and moved towards the right of the lane to be cautious, but he didn't seem to be moving after a period of time so I presumed he saw me and I kept going at a constant speed. Nope, just as I coming up he pulled out and I had to swerve to the other side of the road to avoid him.

Some drivers just seem to scan for cars, and if there is anything that doesn't fit that mould it is invisible to them.

Anyway, lesson learned. I'll be even more cautious in future if I see anyone pulling out of anywhere.

People who don't acknowledge when I let them go past when I'm, say, behind a parked car down a smallish street (one where there might be enough room, but might not be). A lift of the finger is fine, but by god if they just drive straight through I'm ropeable for the next 5-10 minutes. Discourteous cunts.
Also, people who are TOO courteous. To the point of being dangerous. Person facing me turning left into a street I'm turning right into, at traffic lights. He's indicating left, WAITING FOR ME TO GO. No pedestrians, no red arrow on his side or green arrow on mine, just pure dip-shittedness.

Okay, off my chest. Happy now :)

Most roundabouts in Australia only have 3-4 exits, so it doesn't make much sense on those, but on big ones with like 8 exits it may be more suited.

Likewise on the former. Always presume that not everyone is as aware of their surroundings as you are.
On the latter, I've always known about indicating down the particular way you go down, but it seems counter-intuitive, because if you are just going straight from where you were then people would've seen you. The only reason you'd indicate is to give people ahead of you in the order of things an advanced warning. If you don't, they wait .5sec longer. No biggie. (unless there's some scenario I haven't allowed for that justifies that explanation. Otherwise, let's just say "I do it because I feel like it.")
Oh, two-lane roundabouts it's a good place to do it, though.

Nearly been run over as a pedestrian several times by cars speeding through not looking as well as cars not indicating or even INDICATING TO GO LEFT WHEN THEY GO STRAIGHT WHICH IS SUPER FUCKING DANGEROUS AND IF I SEE YOU DO IT I WILL CALL YOU A FUCKWIT STRAIGHT UP TO YOUR FACE FACE.

When driving is just as bad. I have gotten used to people doing a lot of 180's due to the shitty parking in the main area of town which is full or roundabouts but seriously, fuck those people who don't indicate or indicate at the wrong time.

I just treat everyone as if they were 70 year olds having a stroke as they are cruising along, who knows what will happen so just stay the fuck away form the and expect them to try and kill you if they can possibly do it with their last breath.

I posted it here because I didn't know if folks were still subbing to the OT or not. Dudes rocking it in their 40s (I think?) with better flow and energy than guys less than half their age. Too talented.

Edit: Also dropped some cash on this at lunchtime:


$38 and easily justified considering it includes a code for a full digital download *and* iron-on print (which will obviously never get used, but still makes it a little more unique). 180g vinyl too, so it's quality.

They are tasty and they are fruit, although I can't recall the last time I had one (since I was a teenager?). If I ate 4 of them my fiancée would have a heartattack of joy.

Was talking about in that vid, which I couldn't be fucked calculating his age when that vid was shot. I think it puts him at 39, but then again, I couldn't work out $60/4 :(

Want want want.

Also man potty training (well, potty seat that clips onto the big person toilet) is hilarious.

Ah of course. Anyway, at the time of that video he was a few months into this 40th year on this earth. Did you look at the link for CDWOW I sent you? Some decent prices on there otherwise eBay is your best bet for vinyl. Still got my To The 5 Burroughs vinyl somewhere that I got on release at the Leading Edge that used to be across from the (now empty) KFC in the middle of Geelong. Good times.
