Yes..but and there is a but. In most towns/cities, the roundabout markings are consistent. By that I mean that if you are travelling northwards, and you approach a 4 exit roundabout and wish to go straight on i.e. say take 2nd. exit, you take a specific lane as marked out. If travelling in the opposite direction and wish to go straight on (take 2nd,. exit),the lane marked is always the same. In other words, if its right hand lane for 2nd exit going north, it is right hand lane for 2nd. exit going south. In Castlebar the only thing that's consistent is the inconsistency! Go the the next roundabout and the markings can be different still. It's dangerous. I don't mind which lane is decided upon, but surely it should be consistent?
