The first car in the queue of cars to turn right is a fool. He or she has not stopped over the loop in the road to bring up the right turn arrow and yes, it did not work, so the cars behind were stuck too.
A lovely big and thick white line to stop at but the driver does not seem to understand that he or she should stop with the nose of their car at the big thick white line. I really wonder what they think the line is for?
Eventually said motorist will give up and drive straight ahead. Hopefully the following car will stop in the correct place.
But they don't just stop over the line, they also stop well short of the line, with the same effect. No green turning arrow. Now the lane being an exclusive right turn lane, they are snapped by the new camera when they give up and go straight ahead.
When I think of the times when as a pedestrian I have had to walk around a car that is stopped in the pedestrian area at a crossing, I have no sympathy whatsoever. Interestingly, you seldom see the much maligned young male driver doing such stupid things. They just kill themselves and their friends.
