Round and round and round she goes....

By 17 March 2009 95

If I enter a roundabout in the right hand lane and have my right indicator flashing, can I then go straight through the roundabout (opting, perhaps, to indicate left as I exit the other side)?  I thought I could, but the consistent failure of fellow drivers to consider that I may be going strai...
