Turning into the one way road (Owens Road) from Gillies avenue, both ends. The rule is that cars on Gillies who turn left into Owens need to turn into the left lane and cars on Gillies who turn right to Owens need to turn into the right lane. However, not everyone knows this rule. There is a small sign at each end of the intersection to show this but it's not big enough. People can't see it. This makes it difficult for cars turning from the right, as some people think the normal give way rule applies. And this causes misunderstandings between drivers where they'll get angry at one driver even though they did nothing wrong. This has personally happened on many occasions as I live on Owens Road. Attached is a photo of what the sign looks like.
