    On my way home last night.


    Busy 4 way junction on motorbike.


    Temp lights red, main lights green. Sign up for wait at red. To confusing to think which set were red as watching out for other cars and knowing theres a red light camera on the main lights.

    Proceed with caution.

    Were the main traffic lights operating correctly or were they stuck on green?

    No idea as I was behind a big van so didn't see the lights till quite late but the van vas stopped so was I and he would have had a better view.


    I treated it as a roundabout as that's what I was taught in the event of failure. VERY CAREFULLY.

    not really with flowing traffic and other confused drivers whilst on a motorbike. you always get late turners, others that turn right when there is no right turn etc


    anyway it was a very impressive wheelie!

    Shouldn't the council (or whoever placed the temporary lights) have covered the main lights so drivers didn't get confused? Thats what ours do.
