To reply to Mr Nye re Letchworth Gate junction.

Using the lights to turn left is not wrong as there are no signs to the contrary, and for those of us that are not able to turn our necks to such an acute angle that is the only option.

There are also a lot of cars and vans that have a blind spot exactly where you need to look on this junction, so, Mr Nye, these drivers are not inconsiderate, they are doing their best to be safe.

The thought of only using a mirror correctly adjusted or not for any junction or slip road is quite scary and has caused me to hear the words sorry mate I did not see you, (maybe why I now have a prolapsed disc that makes the junction extremely difficult for me to use) with my headlight on, on a red bike with a high visibility yellow jacket. I do agree with Mr Nye about lengthening the filter lane along Letchworth Gate as this is the only safe and sensible method and should have been done from the start.
