Last Friday night out for a sniff round while trying to break my economy record.

I approach a roundabout and see coming toward me a red MKII Micra. No worries, my right of way, but had a feeling...

Join the roundabout indicating right, but still watching said Micra, you're not going to stop are you...?

Getting closer to her, still indicating, just at the point when I need to start indicating left, you really arn't gong to stop are you? I slow gently to a complete stop on the roundabout. She locks her front wheels (once the penny had dropped) right across where I would have been had I not stopped.

I made eye contact, couldn't be bothered to remanstraight, such smiled and carried on, glad there was no exchange of paint.

Yes, well done Adam L. Nice to see this kind of thing done with a certain amount of style and none of the gestures which are so common these days!
