Fair points, but still doesn't support @Ramseyboiopinion that he had the right of way. 

I never said I had right of way because nobody has eight of way on them.  I said some clown beeped at me because he clearly thought he had right of way - despite the fact I was going straight on them rough an unmarked junction and the clown tried to say in front of me to turn right straight across my path.

Unfortunately your lack of understanding as displayed in your posts here shows exactly why he thought he was right.

I never said you did

By inference you did. However moving on, the article says "giving way to other users". So everyone gives way to everyone. Very confusing. It seems in @Ramseyboi s latest experience the other person expected that Ramseyboi should give way. 

My conclusion therefore is that the Bullies will win and the meek with give way. Bit like Quarterbridge but without the lines and rules😭

I had to wait at the Villa at the weekend for about 15 mins for something, so went up on the balcony to admire 'myprom' and the 'not-roundabouts'. 

Everyone was definitely treating it like a roundabout.  I watched one guy coming down from Broadway, sit there for about 5 minutes waiting for someone on his right (north bound) to let him out.  Nobody did.

I think the DOI originally said they would be roundabouts. More recently, when the police asked them for clarification, they’d changed to uncontrolled junctions. 

they were roundabouts on the pretty pictures at the sea terminal IIRC ??

Just shows how thick people are.  I am deliberately treating them differently each to time I go down there to spice things up a bit and wind up the clowns who think they have right of way when they don’t.

A serious point though, unless I messed it when you come down Broadway there is literally no road sign of recognised road marking to  advise you that the road does anything but carry on.  The only thing you see is a red or green light depending on if there is anyone on the crossing.

My passenger (from off island, double jabbed, don’t panic) quite rightly said that he would have probably seen the green light and just cracked on as he couldn’t understand why I slowed down to a crawl

I am considering having a picnic on the roundel at the bottom of Broadway. It is a shared space after all. 

Make it a really big barbecue. With any luck the heat will wreck the tarmac and paint and they'll have to rip it up and do it properly.

That's if they're not already being embarrassed into it.

Good use of the horn to alert him to the fact that it's not a roundabout. 

 

 

Also when is that section near Broadway finally going to have those temporary lights taken away? They're taking the piss, they keep putting down horse tram tracks then lifting them up. Just chalk it down as a loss and tarmac over it.
