Lament of the day

Posted by davidburbage on December 17, 2008

Why do people on main roads stop to let people (coming the other way who are not obstructing the traffic) turn?

This morning I returned from Holyport to the Town Hall, was waiting in the filter lane to turn into Upper Bray Road (that the Council put in a few years ago), not obstructing the traffic when someone coming the other way, towards Windsor, with 2 people behind him, slowed down to let me turn.  Had he not slowed down, I would probably have turned almost as soon (when the 3 cars had passed) and also he wouldn’t have inconvenienced the people behind him.

How does one fix this problem? I have no issue with people letting me turn if there’s a big jam or queue that is going nowhere, but on a normal road in normal conditions, why don’t we just get on and drive?
