Another give way rule test

March 21st, 2012 at 8:58 pm by David Farrar

This test is 14 scenarios and uses actual video of being in a car. Done by Edrive. I got 14/14, so look safe from 25 March.

    I got 3 wrong, but given that I don’t drive (and that in one question I couldn’t see which direction the bloody cyclist was turning), I probably didn’t do all that bad……

    I’m quite impressed they included the cyclist in the questions.

    What do they say about old dogs and new tricks? I can just see it … After you, no after you, no after you. Bugger I’ll go then, someone has to … BANG. Basta!!

    I’m surprised they don’t include scenario’s where the rules haven’t changed

    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.

    i wanted to run over the cyclist.They shouldn’t have been sneaking up my left hand side.

    They should have made it like the grand theft auto game, perhaps, an UZI in the car so you can ensure you always have right of way.

    Much more fun.

    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.

    Looking safe is good David, it’s the other buggers on the road I’m worried about!

    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.

    14/14 but my wife managed only a 7/14 – and I am not allowed to drive for a month for reasons that are unimportant :(

    Good link; much better than previous computer graphic ones I’ve seen before

    Can’t wait for that stupid rule to go.

    14/14 but examples 13 and 14 were totally unrealistic. How many cyclists do you see actually indicating what the fuck they are doing?

    There will be a lot of arguments at intersections after crashes for a while – like about ten years.

    If you got even one question wrong, get off the bloody road and go back to school to learn. It is not hard to comprehend.
    The rules changed in 1977 and we coped then, so cope now.

    @mara – do you want to think about how much a panel-beater will charge for a nice deep scratch down every panel along the side of your motor?

    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.

    They should trial the system first. i.e phase it in.

    On March 25th. It should be just buses and trucks that apply the new give way rule. If it’s successful, a month later cars could follow suit…

    Of course it does you muppet. Roundabouts work like any other road, if you want to join it, you give way to someone already on it.

    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?
