Wellington Diesel Spill

By Ross Colebrooke, in , posted: 28-Sep-2009 16:26

If you are on a motorbike, and heading from Wellington up State Highway One, in the rain, do not expect any sympathy from the Police.

I got stopped multiple times for lane sharing, when the traffic was not moving. It has taken me around 70 minutes to get home, via Haywards.

Good luck for those of you still stuck in the traffic!

Yeah they're not sympathic.  Not sure how legal it is either.  I got done for dangerous driving "lane sharing".  So be careful.

Lane sharing is when you weave inbetween slow moving traffic?  Is that illegal?

News to me...

if you pass stationary traffic on the left there is no offence.  If its moving?
