I have driven through the road-works at Rainbow Bridge several times over the past week or so, and one of the issues exacerbating the traffic congestion is the apparent inability for British traffic to 'use both lanes', despite the road signs telling drivers to do just that in order to 'merge in turn' or 'stich'. It's common sensible practice elsewhere in the world, but misunderstood in this country.

Do we actually love queuing that much?

... and if you do try driving in the right-hand lane slowly overtaking the queue in the left lane, someone will pull out to block your way but not advance, so causing more congestion.

... wonder how bad it'll be next year when they work on the bridge over the quarry conveyor belt, which is why they're creating the cross-over now.  I'm sure that work will take some time with only one carriageway operating at any one time.

... don;t know when it's planned for but Easter onwards would probably be the best time to create as much havoc as possible!

Private hire drivers are not generally known for their good driving manners or skills, but Interlink Taxi drivers have to get top marks for their poor driving standards.  Do they get special training in rudeness and aggressive driving or are they specially selected for having those attributes?

The 70 year old woman needed surgery after being struck by the vehicle and the driver left the scene before the Police arrived.   It shouldn't be hard to trace the driver with all the CCTV cameras in the area but I wonder how the Police will treat this incident.
It made me think of the incident with the horse and rider being hit by a motorist on Sychnant Pass Road.   The driver there left the scene before the Police arrived so they weren't able to carry out any breathalyser or drug test on the driver.
The horse was killed and the horse rider was extremely lucky not to have had serious injuries but what did the Police do?
They decided not to prosecute the driver, will they do it again?

I've been looking for a follow up to that accident that happened on Friday 24th March 2017 but can find nothing in the local papers.   It did say that the Police are appealing for the woman driver to come forward and hand herself in.      &shake&
I'm starting to wonder what resources the Police have put in trying to find the driver.
The chances are that the person is from the local area and there should be CCTV footage of that area and in nearby streets and it wouldn't take that long to see the car.

Roadworks on Colwyn Bay promenade that have caused a headache for motorists and businesses will be lifted for two weeks.
Conwy council is undertaking a major seafront redevelopment to improve the condition of coastal waterfront defenses.
It has seen the road blocked between Victoria Pier and the Marine Road junction and a one way system between that junction and the Cayley Embankment which has caused traffic mayhem at busy times of the day.

due to re-open to two-way traffic for the fortnight’s Easter holidays between 7 and 24 April.

Is it really open or not?
I drove this evening along the Cayley prom and could get no further than the Toad. Had to turn right and go up to Princes Drive, turn left and past the station.

That's as far as you can go now, all they have done is to make that stretch two way instead of a one way system going in the direction to Rhos on Sea.
At least it should help with the bottleneck at Colwyn Bay's West End.

This is unbelievable ....This is the incredible moment that a drunken mother lost control of her car and sent it flying into the air, while her baby son was in the backseat - and all caught on dashcam.

That was a really disturbing video Steve and a miracle that no one was seriously hurt in that accident.    It's a shame that the sentences were concurrent as she deserves to spend longer in prison for that action.
Again a dash cam has helped the Police in this case of dangerous driving.

Despite the gloomy forecast the A55 Cameras are showing some heavy traffic heading towards us.
