Lane discipline is very important in town 1 way systems like this one where a clearly marked bus
or cycle lane on the left cannot be used by other traffic but buses or cycles may merge from that lane.
Check the road markings but generally if soon turning left or going straight ahead use the
centre lane and use the right hand lane only if soon turning right. Beware other drivers cutting rapidly across
lanes, locals may assume you know the same short cuts as them. Beware roadworks or some other obstruction in 1 or
more lanes which may force you from your chosen lane but try to return to it as soon as the way is
Bus only lanes allow public transport to move in cities, don't block them. Beware the ends of
bus lanes when buses may have to move back into the lane that you are in.
Choose the lane you want and don't cross lanes without checking your mirrors and clearly
Read the road markings
Keep out of bus or cycle lanes.
Choose your lane/direction and stay in it
Clearly signal any lane change.
