Have the Leicester traffic authorities followed the correct procedure in setting up the diversion signs? Are they not obliged to let drivers know that a diversion is organised, say, at an 'x' yards distance?
May I know what penalty 'Driving without due care and attention' in general entails? Can I be banned from driving?
As stated in my first mail, I was on a dual carriageway; when I saw a diversion sign pointing to the right, I turned right and I hit a driver coming from the opposite direction.
My question is: is there a reason why a diversion sign cannot lawfully overrule the rule that in a forward only lane you have to proceed forward only? (A change in the 'ordinary' rules is what happens on motorways, anytime diversion signs are displayed and allow drivers to use e.g. the hard shoulder in breach of the 'ordinary' rules. Am I wrong?). Thanks
