New Road Rules

You may have already heard that two of our give way rules are changing. Every motorist, cyclist and pedestrian needs to know these new rules and the followimg explains what you will need to do on the road from 5am Sunday, March 25.

These changes will only apply when a vehicle turning right is facing a vehicle turning left, or at T-intersections. The give way rules at roundabouts and in all other situations are not changing.
We’ll all need to be more cautious as everyone adjusts to the changes but they will ultimately make turning at our intersections safer and simpler.

Change 1: The left-turn versus right-turn rule

The new rule will require all traffic turning right to give way to a vehicle coming from the opposite direction and turning left. This will apply at cross roads, T-intersections and driveways where two vehicles are facing each other with no signs or signals or both are at the same sign or signal (for example both vehicles at a give way or stop sign or both with a green light).

Change 2: At T-intersections without signs or signals

At uncontrolled T-intersections traffic coming from the road that terminates at the T-intersection (bottom of the T) must give way to traffic on the continuing road (top of the T). This also applies to uncontrolled driveways such as supermarkets, and will mean vehicles exiting a driveway must give way to all traffic on the road.
