Drivers now use rat run

A large part of the problem with the traffic chaos at the John Reid roundabout is drivers leaving the road at the Perth Avenue junction.

They then use the Scotch Estate as a rat run, forcing their way out at the Edinburgh Road sliproad, causing a tailback to the roundabout.

A simple solution would be to convert the Edinburgh Road exit to a junction with giveway signage.

Drivers will always allow cars out and traffic flows better.
