I can't stand those weird chase ones. The second it takes my brain to process them is a second I could be using to observe and interpret other potential hazards. Same with the DRLs that switch on and off as you indicate and turn corners. It's too much input.Is it just me or do some car manufacturers seem to specialise in indicators (especially on the front) which are very difficult to see in some circumstances.
I was crossing a road on foot yeaterday and found myself looking at a car with this feature (actually - DRLs that didn't dim and indicators very close together) and it took me a good double take and a stare to work out if it was indicating or not.I can't stand those weird chase ones.

This is part of why we don't get nice things. They may both be "adamant they have the right of way" but the turning vehicle operator is wrong and we should tell them they are wrong, rather than pretend they are correct! It is very disappointing to read someone on a cycling forum trotting out these old motorist myths.This is precisely why cycle paths and lanes are less safe than riding on the road: a left turner on the right and a vehicle on the left going straight ahead, both of whom are adamant they have the right of way. Most accidents occur at junctions, not between junctions, so cycle paths reduce the minor problem, and increase the major one.
Except that exact layout happens at various places! Even better, there are some level junctions on fast/busy roads where the lanes are: left turn, right turn, ahead, ahead. I believe that's because it's considered undesirable to get turning lorries into lane 3/4 and wait for a gap in oncoming traffic. The conflict is prevented by the junction traffic lights not showing green to both right and ahead at the same time. We could do this — and much more — for cycleways, if highways departments were willing to install better signal controllers instead of the simple stupid ones widespread in the UK.
So every single unmarked junction and all those modern shared spaces are all "plainly at fault"? What about crossroads where right-turning vehicles arrive at opposite minor arms simultaneously? Plenty of room to argue who goes first there.[...] If there's any room to argue about who has the right of way, the road design is plainly at fault.
Those are awful! The low difference between bright yellow and white is too little, so if they are close together, it can be difficult to tell at a glance if it is a DRL or an indicator in the "on" phase.Same with the DRLs that switch on and off as you indicate and turn corners. It's too much input.
