I liked the idea for the first change and can see its benefits and drawbacks, but felt the confusion created was not worth the effort. Anyway, the Labour party went ahead and changed it, so now - as they say - it is simpler as you only have to remember to give way to your right at uncontrolled intersections. Ha!
For the National party to consider this to be important when everything else - I mean ANYTHING else would be a higher priority: Education - pay the poor teachers more, Earthquake awareness - lets get our act together and pull down the risky buildings before..., Health - what a frigging mess!! Justice - Are U kidding when you have to wait years...
But oh no, whether a car should give way to one turning left is FAR MORE important.
As Homer would say, Doh!
I'm saying the confusion will kill - more than it is now, and I hope the real intelligent folk here will enlighten us with some good ideas on how to stop this rule change.
Or if you feel inclined, voice your support either way.
