Great to see cyclists and SUV drivers indicating for a change!
14/14, but gotta say it felt pretty weird to be giving way the “wrong” way. Normally it’s not something I even think about, from Sunday I’m going to have to consciously think what the right rule is (then keep in mind the other driver may not remember either).
But it only takes a few days to get used to driving on the right (at least the simple rules, roundabouts scare me if I see them in the States) so I’m sure that by April most people will have adapted.
Archer. Cyclists shouldn’t be on the roads at all. This is the twenty first century. If they want to bicycle, they should be doing it on a paddock or something similar and get the hell out of my way. I try to avoid honking them off the road only because there is no doubt much time lost at police stations afterwards dealing with the paperwork which would be a major inconvenience.
14/14, and I want to buy a Suzuki Vitara. (Not really).
Interesting though… who is eDrive? Great to see (what appears to be) the private sector using some initiative to provide this public service (though I note the NZTA and ACC logos there too). I’ll put $20 down and say that if this was done under the previous government, the tax payers would be paying the whole bill.
14/14. Fortunately I know I can’t trust anyone else at an intersection (or roundabout) until I can see the whites of their eyes and can actually see what they’re going to do. From my experience indicators are now just an afterthought at best, and the road rules consist of doing whatever you can get away with.
“How does this work at roundabouts? Does it stay the same?
I think they should have changed the rules in all cases, or none. Is no use only changing half of them.”
cant tell if serious………
so you want to start giving way to vehicles coming from your left? (take your time)
or you just want a free for all?
