- When approaching a speed camera should a break even if I was already below the speed limit just in case someone has set the camera wrong?

- When driving through a car park and see someone reversing out of a bay should I squeeze passed the back of them?

- When travelling in at 40mph in a 60mph zone and enter a 30mph maintain the higher speed.

I could go on but thought if I cleared up these first
I almost had 2 aqccidents today due to people indicating incorrectly on a roundabout. Either indicating too early or just in the wrong direction.

I know for certain (trained Driving Instructor) that you should only indicate right if turning right, i.e further round than straight on (exit 2). If going straight on you only indicate for your exit.

Poeple can't drive these days.

It drives me crackers, 20 years without an accident!
