Let the top of the T go first af­ter give way rules change

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

On March 25, to make our roads safer, two of the give way rules are chang­ing.

These changes will af­fect all driv­ers, riders, pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists. Re­mem­ber to share the road, obey all road signs and sig­nals, and make sure you know the new rules.

When you’re turn­ing right from the bot­tom of a T-in­ter­sec­tion with no signs or sig­nals, you will need to give way to all ve­hi­cles at the top of the T.

So at all T-in­ter­sec­tions and drive­ways, in­clud­ing public drive­ways such as at a su­per­mar­ket or hospi­tal, think ‘‘Top of the T goes be­fore me’’. If you’re turn­ing right, give way. This rule will ap­ply at in­ter­sec­tions where two ve­hi­cles are fac­ing no signs or sig­nals, or the same signs or sig­nals.

You will need to give way to left-turn­ing ve­hi­cles com­ing from the op­po­site di­rec­tion if you are turn­ing right.
