ROUNDABOUT JUMPING BY CIRCUMNAVIGATION                                       


We are queuing in the left lane to go straight ahead at a roundabout; this is how it is marked in this particular situation.  The driver overtakes by driving down the lane marked for a right turn; circumnavigates the roundabout and drives straight ahead from the original position. This is not driving with due consideration for other road users.  If these instances are carried out in view of a police officer, why not issue an on the spot fine, if you want to challenge the fine in court and you lose, the fine is increased to cover the extra costs.  If drivers are aware of these penalties it might make them think before carrying out these manoeuvres. There seems no deterrent to stop drivers committing these acts of selfishness and lets be honest about it, it is very frustrating because it happens so often.
