box junctions

am i the only person in kings heath who knows how to use a box junction? i.e. do not enter unless your exit is clear EXCEPT WHEN TURNING RIGHT!!!

every morning I turn right from kings heath high street into vicarage road and 9 out of 10 people who are turning right do not use the box junction correctly and hover gingerly outside of it like scared mice. even if I am at the front of the queue and correctly move to the middle of the box junction ready to turn right, the people behind me do not even follow me and stay behind the line.

now admittedly their actions (or inactions) are not particularly dangerous, it just annoys the hell out of me and I wonder how many other highway rules they don’t fully understand or are too scared to implement.
