Ready for the new Give Way rules?

As I am sure you know by now, two of the give way rules are changing from 5 am tomorrow.

The New Zealand Herald reported earlier this week that 1 in 10 people got at least one question wrong on an interactive test regarding the rule changes.

Online polls show that most Kiwis are ready for the change.  Many welcome the change as well.  The Herald’s Alistair Sloane says that New Zealand will be saying goodbye to “the dumbest road rule in the world” tomorrow morning.

So our question to you is; Are you ready?  Are you happy about the change?  What are your thoughts as tomorrow morning rapidly approaches?

By the way, if you want to take the online exam you can go to

Have been ready since they originaly changed the rules in the late 70’s.
Just to celebrate I might don the flares, wind down the windows and let Toto blast out, oh must get the fluffy dice onto the mirror as well.
Seriously though, at the time we could not beleive the change and for the last 30+ years it has been a guess as to which set of rules drivers at intersections were following.
It will be good to have a resumption of common sense……..or what is left or right of it.
