Pah! I'm going to contest your scoring David, because I in fact, actually do not believe you and feel you have scored me wrong! And am very upset. And feel the need to bore you to death with a rather lengthy explanation because I'm bored! :| :P
1) You brakes are not functioning properly. You handbrake applied like looks more like this ((P))
The ((!)) symbol on the combi/instrument panel display is the handbrake tell tale lamp. I.e. lights up and stays lit up when or while the handbrake is applied. However, it can also light up, depending on the model and make of your 'crap' modern car if the ECU fails for whatever reason and conjures up an error code! Usually though, the engine warning lamp lights up in these circumstances :D. I have never heard of a car that displays the said warning lamp for a brake failure!
Usually the sensor or switch for this warning lamp is fixed to the handbrake lever mechanism itself! Therefore in no way part of the normal hydraulic foot pedal braking mechanism! As far as I am aware, I have never ever seen a (p) symbol. Perhaps this is an American standard?! My understanding is that selected modern cars, usually up the higher end of the budget market, are fitted with all sorts of sensors and a user friendly in car computer. Which can display such information as low washer fluid level, worn brake pads and perhaps even a brake failure of some kind. However this should not in no way be in conjunction with the ((!)) symbol!
You can only stop on a yellow box junction when you are turning right and are stopped by oncoming traffic only.
Are you sure? As far as I can remember, I was told or read: That you are not allowed to stop in a yellow box junction at any time. You are however allowed to wait
in a box junction if you are turning right and your exit path is clear. You are not allowed to wait in the box junction if your exit path is blocked otherwise you will have stopped :D and will be defeating the object of the box junction! The only other time when I would imagine stopping in a yellow box junction is acceptable is if you are required to move into the box junction to move out of the way of an emergency services vehicle!
Reeead and weep Dave! Read and weep! Please, please people feel free to quote me!
