jamesrt:floydbloke: Some more redlight antics. 4-wheel and ~18-wheel this time.
I live very close to that intersection; crashes are common, and unfortunately deaths are not uncommon either.
A motorcyclist died recently after a T-Boning, but in that case, from memory, he was the one that ran the red light.
Personally, I always double-check the traffic coming from the left before I cross over that lane (the lane the truckie blew thru the lights in) despite my light being green...
If that is the intersection at Aotea lagoon Porirua I can't understand why the limit hasn't been dropped approaching the lights. As an example the Palmerston turn off on the Himitangi Straights is a 70 zone if there is cross traffic waiting at the Give Way signs.
