    Well, I think they would be better than nothing, you would stand a better chance of not getting smacked into, if they were on though.

    There was a similar sytem into and out of Uxbridge for a while. This led to my having a car written-off by a driver under the influence. He pulled into the 'shared' lane at the wrong time, lost control when another car entered the lane legitimately, and hit my car. Apparently, just one of the many collisions caused by those motorists who chose to ignore the times relevant to the 'shared' lane.* The road lanes have now been changed, and the old centre lane is now full of 'protected' turning spaces, with islands along most of the length to stop overtaking.
    *The question was also raised as to how many motorists cannot read, making the signage redundant.

    Re hazards and parking, the pillocks are a hazard, parked or driving, so perhaps it could be correct to use the hazard lights.
    It's not that you can use the hard shoulder, but that there no longer is one.
