Have you ever been to the Mooragh? I think I once counted thirty seven signs in there and around the outside. 

All part of blame culture, it’s a wonder there isn’t railings all the way round, most of those signs will be for no swimming, no cycling and no dogs.

And yet there’s always people cycling or walking dogs in there. Might be too many so people just end up ignoring them.

But Mooragh Park is a reasonable size. At the MER stop on Parsonage Road I counted 21 signs - Entry, No Entry, This Way, That Way. Well, that was a few years ago and there have been several breeding seasons since, so now there may be a few more.

And no smoking on the benches.

Report from Manx radio says MHK Tim Glover who has resbonsibility for DOI . Surely thats not right ? 

Chris Thomas was absent (as were Christian and Barber, so clearly MHKs aren't immune to Covid) so Glover was standing in for him as a Departmental Member.

It isn’t a difficult problem though and we now have non standard warning signs, on a non stamdard junction, on a non standard promenade. It’s just an unrelenting mess of made up on the hoof implemented rubbish. If they’d have kept the existing tram layout there would be no need for any of this.

I see what you did there!

Slightly off topic but a traffic question.....

Does someone coming out of Corkills Garage, south side entrance, have priority at the roundabout???

Surely, coming from private land they are not part of the road traffic which is watching the main road flow of cars?

Two near misses now!

I think you'll find there is a 'sign' saying you can't go out that way. Loads do though and indeed if the pumps are all busy there's  no other way out .

Always assumed that is entry only and north side is exit.

Well if all the pumps are busy and I have been to the shop or chemist and not needed petrol I am not sitting there waiting.  
 

Don’t sensible people just treat it as part of the roundabout?  Hundreds of people come out of there ever day and I have never had an issue

I’d yield to my right because it’s still a junction/exit on a roundabout, it’s not really the junction that’s important but the roundabout, if they can merge onto the roundabout before you then you have two options, give way or crash into them.

Speed on approach is the important factor, if it’s clear I would slow down and see if they go, if they don’t then I’ll take priority.
