Roundabout rebels, overly aggressive drivers and bad lane changers were some of the main issues pointed out by readers on the Daily Liberal Facebook page, who were asked to provide feedback on how drivers in Dubbo could do better.
In a bid to highlight road safety issues and increase awareness of driver behaviour, readers were asked to share their driving tips with local motorists.
Below is a snapshot of some of the comments readers made.
City's parking problems
"Car spaces in Wingewarra and Brisbane streets are so narrow a medium sized car can barely fit between the lines," Narelle Grant wrote.
Adi Christiansen said "some parks are so small that my car is over the lines on both sides".
"I feel an advertising campaign on how to correctly use a roundabout would be ideal," Carolyn Goedhart suggested. "For a city that has so many, there still seems to be a large number of drivers around that don't know how to use them correctly," she said. "Pay attention!"
Jase Kosij suggested cameras be placed at roundabouts and fines imposed on "people who hog lanes and think they can enter the roundabout in the inside lane but exit in the out side lane every bloody time".
Molly Boyd said people should "stop changing from the inside to outside lane on a roundabout". "I have almost been taken out by so many drivers at the Birch/Wheelers Lane roundabout by idiots that switch and exit in the wrong lane," she advised.
Natalie Marchant suggested the government "put lines through the roundabouts so people learn not to cut you off".
Road rage concerns
"As a p-plater, the number one issue on our roads is driver aggression and impatience," Sarah Foster said.
Destiny Griffiths said she learnt how to drive in a bigger city and could "honestly say city drivers are 10 times more aware, courteous, patient and understand how to make traffic flow". "I've never felt more nervous driving anywhere then I do when driving in Dubbo," she said. "They have absolutely no idea, and for how busy it is getting there, the roads in town need upgrading to improve traffic flow."
Stop, revive survive
Joseph Hupp reminded drivers that fatigue was one of the biggest killers. "If you are tired and sleepy, pull over and have a nap," he said. "It could potentially save your life."
"Stop looking at mobile phones at traffic lights then get peed off when I beep at you 30 seconds after it's green," Graham Parker wrote.
Look and use your blinker
Hayley Reynolds said people should learn "to use blinkers and to bloody look before merging". "It's insane, the amount of times I've almost been hit with my 4-year-old and 5-month-old in the car because the person simply didn't bloody look before trying to merge lanes," she said.
Call for more education
"People can blame roads... all they want, but the core problem is a clear inability to drive," Nathan Kevin Spears said. "And I don't mean how to steer or change gears... I mean how to pay attention to your surroundings and other road users, and then how to apply to the road rules accordingly."
