A poll by the show found that 25% of people always think a motorist has the right of way when turning left, and half of those polled think cyclists should keep to the left of the lane at the turn. approaching junctions – results that confirm Cycling UK’s belief (despite hundreds, if not thousands of road.cc articles on the subject…) that the new changes have not been given enough publicity.

So not so bad then, as far as these things go.
