Driving Instructor News - Yellow Box Junctions

Prime Driving School, has learnt from the RAC that that eight in ten motorists struggle at box junctions.

A recent survey identified that two-thirds of drivers say that they find it difficult to get through some yellow box junctions without stopping. Almost half admit they sometimes get stuck in them accidently.

Poor sequencing of traffic lights is blamed by 78% of those that struggle to stop, while 32% blame other drivers forcing them to do so. One in five believe the box junctions are badly designed.

London and Cardiff are currently the only local authorities that are able to enforce yellow box junctions with cameras and issue penalty charges.

Box junctions can also heighten stress for drivers as those at the front of traffic lights often feel pressured to move on as a result of impatient drivers behind who don't realise they are being prevented from doing so by the presence of yellow lines.
