Why are the needed? They just serve to confuse the sh!t out of people. One cant one direction have the right of way, while the other has to give way, like any other intersection?? There's a few around here in QBN, but none in Canberra so i haven't had to deal with them much. I f*cked up one day when i was coming down the road, stopped at the stop sign, saw a bloke coming in the direction opposite mine but he was turning. I just pulled out thinking it was like any other intersection where the turning vehicle has to give way to the vehicle going straight in their lane. I was quite suprised when he turned in front of me!! Then I realised and thought, what the f*ck??
