'[OT]New Zealand to confuse the unconfused, but the'

For those who come from countries that drive on the proper side of the road (that'd be on the left :) ), NZ tends to surprise motorists with the car turning right across from you has right of way over a car turning left into the same street - or as I've read it called 'Gutter hugger turning'.

As of tomorrow NZ'ers will now be confused by changing the road rules that allow the vehicle turning left has priority over that turning right across it. However all the other Commonwealth and ex Commonwealth countries visitors (Canada the notable exception) will no longer be confounded or surprised unless of course they've ' gorn native ' (sic), in which case they'll be confusingly confused.

The question is has the government left a settling in period for people to get used to the new rules before prosecuting people for dangerous maneuvering?

> So they are now reverting to what used to exist

It makes sense at the bottom of my road. Currently when I'm
turning right from the main road into my road, someone turning
left has to wait for me. But behind them the road goes from
one lane under a bridge to two lanes. So people overtake the
left-turner and stop me from turning right. This leaves the left-
turner as a road block in the left lane. I wave them around the
corner because the left-turner always has a clear turn and I'm
not going anywhere until there's a break in the traffic

I just hope that those who 'get it' won't assume that everyone
else has too and plough on regardless

Oh to be a panelbeater on Monda

Homebrew is the answer, if your fuggles and carlsberger saccharomyces shows great potency, then fill your car up with it as well.

I read today that it will cost GBP 100 to fill a Mondeo with unleaded petrol with prices at 1.51 /l or over GBP 6.59 an imperial gallon. Gosh I used to think 75p a gallon was expensive, but then my pay was only 20 quid a week in 1976.

Don't use alcohol in your car ??

Maybe I should buy a bigger block of land and plant rape or sunflowers, seeing my car is a diesel ...

My diesel Mondeo with a 70 litre tank has been threatening to be a £100 fill for almost as long as I have owned it (about a year). Diesel is a few pence dearer than unleaded.
