Cry havoc and change the rules- again

"The Government has confirmed New Zealand's give way rules for turning vehicles will be changed early next year.

Drivers will have to get used to giving left-turning traffic the right of way when the changes kick-in on March 25, 2012.

Currently, drivers turning left have to give way to vehicles turning right.

Transport Minister Steven Joyce said it was "not necessarily the case" that there would be a spike of accidents when the rules changed..."

Time to buy shares in a panel beating business. The transport minister is dreaming or retarded if he thinks there won't be a 'spike in accidents'

Hell, some have never come to turns with the rule change back in the '70's when they went to the hair-brained 'right-hand rule', in the first place...
