Hope all ok, by the way it's not a roundabout it's a ring road, roundabouts are in my eyes a lot safer

Shouldn't that be Wombwell Lane?

It doesn't say that the car pulled out it says there was a collision. People always blame the drivers of the cars. I always look for bikers and when I see em in my mirror I always try to give room to pass safely. But a lot of bikers think they have the rite to tear arse at twice the speed. Just saying that's all

the car was coming from tescos to stairfoot roundabout and the bike was coming from stairfoot roundabout towards tescos, the car then made a right turn across the path of the motorcycle as he tried to get into the Car Sales pitch

Correct me if im wrong but if the car was turning right into md cars coming frm tescos ismt that an illegal manuver over red hatchings? Shouldnt the car have gone round the roundabout

The car has turned across the path of the bike.

To turn right into m&d off wombwell lane you have to be approaching from Tesco and not stairfoot roundabout.

Yes jbr i was just wondering if that monuver by the car was allowed anyway as there are red hatchings at those lights outside md cars cant you only access that place left from stairfoot rounababout?

Hmm, if women ate rubbish at driving, then why is it that women have cheaper car insurance, if we as women where a danger on the roads then our car insurance would be seriously expensive also just to make another point it the younger generation who ate terrible at driving and men have the worst road rage ever racing around trying to show off their cats look at my fast car car with the most annoying exhaust ever to be heard all drivers have a responsibility to be safe on the road
