Approaching Princes Street
When, in 1979, I drove down Hanover Street in Edinburgh with the intention of turning left on Princes Street, I got a surprise. According to the traffic signs I could turn neither left nor right! My only option,
according to the traffic signs, was to drive straight - straight into the Royal Scottish Academy? Unfortunately my car was the only one waiting for the red light to turn green, so I had nobody’s example to follow. Luckily, however, there was virtually
no other traffic so I decided to turn left anyway, in the planned direction.
