A four hour standoff has taken place in Cardiff after three motorists simultaneously arrive at a mini roundabout.

The three motorists couldn’t decide whose right of way it was so just sat there for four hours looking at each other.

An eyewitness told WalesOnCraic:

“I’d just been to the shop as I’d run out of milk. On my way back, I noticed that there was a bit of a build up of traffic so being a nosey twat, I headed down to see what was going on. There were three cars there at the roundabout and all of the drivers were just sat there, looking at each other. The drivers behind were getting very impatient and started tooting their horns but none of the three drivers at the roundabout dared move. I got a bit bored after a while but four hours later, when I popped out to get some bread, I noticed that they were still there.”

One of the motorists, who didn’t want to be named for fear of reprisals said:

“We all arrived at the same time so none of us knew who should go first. Every time I went to put my foot on the gas, one of the others would decide to do the same so I put my foot on the brake. This happened several times over the four hours and it was a real shame because I missed The Chase and I always like to watch that before I make my tea.”
