  1. One very positive thing they could do to reduce accidents is to fall in line with the rest of Europe or the world, in how to deal with a traffic Island or roundabout. Everywhere else drivers are taught to stick to the outer lane for the first available exit, and the inner lane for second and subsequent exits peeling off to the outside as you pass the exit before yours.
    Not so in Spain. Even when there are two lanes clearly marked going onto the island, they are taught to stick to the outer one, and then potentially to drive all the way round, carving up everyone else . . . They think this is correct and don’t seem able to understand that it makes having two marked lanes futile.
