    so when you're joining a road from a filter lane do you use the filter lane to the very end if there's zero traffic on the road?

    I'll try to build up my speed adequately on it to make sure that something that may not be visible won't have to brake for me, but no I don't as a rule.

    Completely different scenario though, as the example of filtering traffic is only really an issue when traffic is incredibly slow.

    no it's not. filter lanes are designed to allow you to get upto speed before you join the carriage way to reduce the impact on the traffic already travelling at speed. if the traffic is stand still you should join the traffic as soon as possible. not use the filter lane to progress down the queue ahead of everyone

    We're talking about different type of filter lanes. Read my description again.

    Yep, I'm that guy who speeds past you all and cuts back in at the top. Because that's what that lane is meant for!

    Nope, I explained in more detail.

    In this instance I would be filtering in from the right, after a roundabout.

    In my scenario, the red lane is chockablock. I join the road in the green lane and filter in from it at the top. As it's designed to be used.

    We're talking apples and oranges I think.

    what you are on about isn't the filter lane.

    the filter lane would be the one coming to the roundabout not after is. after it you are just in a lane

    The lane on the right exists to stop the roundabout bunching up. But people don't use it for the reasons I've outlined.
