bazzer:Buzz Bumble: On Auckland's Northern Motorwway there's a section which has three lanes and then narrows down to two lanes, with the left-hand and centre lanes merging, but before the merge point there is a busy off-ramp. so at peak afternoon time all the lanes are usually going quite slowly. After the off-ramp the left-hand lane is usually empty, so you always get idiot hoons who move from the middle lane into the empty left lane, zoom up, and then try to push back in further up where it merges ... saving a few seconds at most.
Constellation -> Greville?
Tristram to Constellation over bridge (the merge is on the overbridge). They've started work on making it three lanes through to Albany Highway or Othea Valley.
blakamin: THEN THEY SHOULDN'T BE ON THE OPEN ROAD!
Stick to 50kp/h zones.
And here we have the typical selfish attitude responsible for 90% of the roads hoon and bad driving problems. :-\
Then explain how it is safer? when coming around a blind bend at say 90km/h and encounter a car in front of you only doing 60km/h. Again explain how this is safer under your premise, travelling along SH1 and you get behind a car doing 60km/h, unable to pass but constantly having to flash your brakes to slow approaching vehicles behind you so you don't get tail ended by a car travelling 100km/h.
I feel your pain. I have to say I have seen so many drivers ignoring a reasonable speed and sticking to 60kph on an open road. Its frustrating and dangerous. Maybe making certain age groups resit their test should be compulsary. Actually that comment sounds ageist and I'm indicating it is our older generation driving like nana's on the road, but most of the one's I see are quite old!
