Positioning in the left-hand lane when turning right at a roundabout

When you need to turn right at a roundabout. You use the left-hand lane when it’s not appropriate, and continue around the roundabout in that lane. This causes confusion to several following vehicles.

Obstructing traffic when you wait to turn right

When you want to turn right into a minor road, you position your car too far to the left while you wait for oncoming traffic to clear. This causes severe delays to the following traffic on a road where it was wide enough for the traffic to pass you on the left.

When you want to turn right at the end of the road, you incorrectly position to the left

When you reach the end of a wide road with no road markings, you position in the left of your lane when you’re actually turning right.
Or when you are in a one-way street and you are asked to turn right and position on the left instead of the right therefore not reacting to the road markings.
