Drivers who merge into lane at the last minute are right - and this is why.

Most drivers will feel a bristle of annoyance when they see a motorist going right to the front of a queue of traffic to merge into another lane.
And many drivers refuse to let them in. But apparently, what the other vehicle is doing is correct.

According to the RAC, we should all be using merging in turn or 'zip-merging'.
The practice is a traffic flow measure which encourages cars in two lanes to take it in turns feeding into a single lane during a closure - rather than merging early and queuing.    cont  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I travelled down the A470 on Wednesday and saw the Police Camera van at Glan Conwy and later on in Llanrwst.    It could be argued that their resources could be better deployed elsewhere, especially since the drastic cuts that have been imposed on the Police by the Conservative government in the last 10 years.
Under a FOI Act I found out that the Police force cameras only record drivers breaking the speed limit but technology is available in the form of Vulcan cameras that can detect dangerous drivers too, such as those using their mobile phones and other distracting things while driving.   
If such cameras were installed then it may release the Police to do other jobs especially since Boris has promised to increase the numbers of Police Officers in the UK

Maybe they'd like to use this Vulcan:

MAINTENANCE work is set to be carried on the Penmaenbach headland.

Traffic Wales said the work will take place on the narrow stretch of the A55 for three nights from January 20 to 23.

The diversion, in place from 7pm to 7am, will direct motorists travelling through Penmaenbach Tunnel.

Motorists are being reminded that there is a 3.2-metre width restriction in force.

A new gas pipe scheme looks set to cause months of traffic disruption in a seaside village.                        ref DP
Wales & West Utilities started working on the £530,000 project today in Penrhyn Bay, Conwy.

The work which is being described as "essential", is to upgrade nearly four kilometres of gas pipes and is expected to be finished by August 7, unless there are any engineering difficulties.

Temporary traffic lights will be put up.
A one-way system will also be in place on Penrhyn Beach from April 27 to May 15 and a diversion route, which will be clearly signposted, will be via Glan-Y-Mor Road and Beach Drive.

The public information event will be held on Saturday between 9am – 3pm at Parish Office, St David’s Church, Penrhyn Bay.
(not sure but assuming will be this Saturday )

When I bought my first car I remember reading that 1 in 3 cars would catch fire at some point. Nowadays it's a rarity to see that.

A stretch of the A55 will be down to single lanes in both directions for the majority of February.

Lane two of the A55 between Junction 18, Llandudno Junction and Junction 23, Llanddudlas, will be closed from 8pm to 6am.

The work to repair lighting will begin tonight and will continue until February 21, 2020.

At long last the road on the top of the Cayley Banking above the prom is to be re-surfaced.

Fun and games visiting and exiting Mostyn Champneys today, the top entrance is closed due to serious road works, I believe a new traffic light system being installed, plus the build up for the Cambrian Rally on Venue Cymru car park, putting pressure on all surrounding junctions.

Unfortunately on the way home we passed, what appeared to be an accident, near the bridge on Bryniau Rd, we got through, with the help of a passerby who took on the traffic supervision, but I suspect delays.
