don't the fuel gauge in the car give a clue as to which side of a car, the filler cap is? ie shows a petrol pump icon?

two, how DO you negotiate these roundabouts that have a new lane that grows from the kerb of the roundabout itself,

three lanes usually left lane turning left/straight on
middle lane straight on, or right?(using the whole roundabout, 270 or 360 degrees?)
off side lane turn right? no way, cos the lane that grows " forces the traffic to veer to the middle lane.......
and the nearside lane is cross hatched out at 180 degrees
one in Peterborough is like that.....

Yes! They all do.. Either a little arrow or the side of the pump the hose is on indicates the car's filler side...

I've seen a buttload of bad driving lately, one led to a very messy crash, just missed another T-boning today (about thirty seconds before I arrived), there was a high speed multiple fatality the other day not far from here, and it's barely eight weeks since a young fool spun his S2000 into a Hyundai, then bounced into a tree two streets away. Oh, and a collision between two artics this morning, killing one driver. Fine weather, good visibility.

I think the crash which "meant" the most to me was one about eighteen months ago. I didn't know the deceased, nor the actual road, but have plenty of experience on similar roads. Look at the emptiness of the landscape in the link below; to lose control and die alone in a crushed, rolled over Landcruiser with not even the touch or words of a passing motorist. Who really wants to go like that?
