It now seems that cars – as well as bikes – are going the wrong way around the roundabout at Penarth Marina, at the bottom of Dock Hill – a spot already notorious for cyclists ignoring the rules of the road .
Footage has reached PDN of three cars in succession taking a “short cut” from the Marina up Dock Hill without circumnavigating the “Mermaid” roundabout at the bottom of the hill.
Locals say this is most likely to happen when there is a traffic tailback of cars queuing to enter the Cardiff Barrage car park .
Despite the arrow chevron markings , impatient drivers are passing the roundabout on their left hand side and driving straight up the hill – often coming into head-on situations with vehicles coming down the hill in the opposite direction.
One local resident said it is only a matter of time before there is a serious accident.
